Voters in Shoreline, Lake Forest Park and around Washington state can read personal voters’ guides for the August 2 primary election online.
Voters can get the online voter guides now, rather than wait for the voters’ pamphlets to arrive late in the week. The King County elections office sends the pamphlets by bulk mail to all residential addresses a day before ballots go to registered voters by a faster form of mail Thursday, July 14.
While the mailed pamphlets contain information on every contest in dozens of ZIP codes, online guides are individualized for each voter. So instead of looking at information for several legislative districts and ballot measures from the city of Seattle, a voter in Shoreline would find material only about the 32nd Legislative District and other items on his or her ballot.
