Thurston County’s primary-election ballots are ready and voters should start receiving them as soon as Saturday in the mailbox, county elections officials said Tuesday.
The Aug. 18 primary is vote-by-mail in 38 of the state’s 39 counties.
Drop boxes are available for those who prefer to drop off their ballots in person; the boxes will close at 8 p.m. election night.
Eighteen ballot-drop locations in Thurston County are listed in the county’s voters pamphlet. Those were mailed recently to voters whose jurisdictions have measures or contested races on the primary ballot.
