Primary/General Election

For the purposes of being concise, I'm providing a link to King County Elections for questions on caucusing, and primary and general elections. This website is full of valuable information to explain the process of electing delegates for presidential elections, and how the parties develop their platforms. There is also an explanation on the website for why Washington State is not holding a primary election this year. In short: the governor and legislature decided to suspend the 2012 presidential primary election to save WA 10 million dollars. The primary presidential election will resume in 2016.

The Washington State Primary election is Aug. 7, 2012. Ballots must be postmarked by Aug. 7. There is also a Ballot Drop Box at City Hall in Issaquah.

Nov.6th 2012 is the General Election date for State Legislature,  Congressional, Senatorial, Gubernatorial (governor's race), and Presidential races. Ballots must be postmarked by Aug. 7th.

If you are a mail in voter, its beneficial to vote, and send in or drop your ballot as soon as possible. It puts less stress on election staff.
