Washington’s Presidential Primary Voters’ Pamphlet will begin hitting mailboxes this Saturday.
The slim publication will be going out to nearly 3.3 million households. The pamphlet includes a concise explanation of how the PrezPrimary works, including the requirement that voters mark a political party declaration, sign it, and then proceed to vote for one candidate on the party list of their choice.
The pamphlet gives each of the candidates a page to provide a statement, background, and contact information. The Democrats are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Republicans are Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Carson did not submit a signed form withdrawing from the Washington Primary, though he has dropped out of the race.
The voter guide is available in English, Spanish, Vietnamese and Chinese, as well as in text and audio format for voters with disabilities. All can be found here.
Monday, April 25, is the online and mail-in voter registration deadline for those not already signed up or who wish to update their information. The online tool is www.vote.wa.gov. The Online Voters Guide is also available within www.MyVote.wa.gov
About 65,000 ballots already have gone out to military and overseas voters, and some are already coming back into county election offices. The rest of the 4 million registered voters will automatically get ballots beginning May 4. Return postmark deadline is May 24 and those who use drop boxes have until 8 p.m. May 24.
