Local voter turnout ahead of county and state averages

Local voters cast their ballots for the Aug. 5 primary election at a higher rate than the county or state averages.

The King County part of the 32nd Legislative District, including Shoreline and part of northwest Seattle had a turnout of 39 percent, while the 46th District, including Lake Forest Park, Kenmore and northeast Seattle, had a turnout of 35 percent.

That compared to 29 percent for all of King County and 31 percent for the whole state.

Counties around the state had turnouts ranging from 26 percent to 54 percent. Non-charter counties each had eight county positions on the ballot, while King County and some other charter counties had only one.

It must really pain Evan Smith to write that Chris Eggen lost in the primary since he hasn't bothered to write about it yet.
