Turnout during local primary elections is historically lame. Last August it was 27 percent in Spokane County
. Even that was higher than the 22 percent state average.
Let's try to break the 30 percent mark this time around, shall we?
Those of you who are registered to vote have received your ballots in the mail and (we trust) read our rundowns on who's asking for your vote for the Spokane City Council, the Valley City Council and the state senate seat representing the far-flung 7th District. If not, bone up, and/or check out the County's Voter Guide.
Ballots must be postmarked or dropped at one of these locations by 8 pm tomorrow (results starting flowing at 8:15):
- Airway Heights (1213 S Lundstrom St)
- Argonne (4322 N Argonne Rd)
- Deer Park (208 S Forest Ave)
