LFP has highest voter turnout in King County – nearly 42%

Lake Forest Park continues to have the highest primary election voter turnout in King County.

The LFP ballot-return rate reached 41.81 percent this week – far ahead of the countywide return rate of 30.69 percent.

Those rates are unlikely to change much between now and the end of ballot counting Wednesday. Only nine ballots arrived from around the County Friday, none from Lake Forest Park.

Ballots arriving at this time are either late ballots from overseas voters or ballots that arrived on time but were returned for signature verification.

LFP voters were choosing candidates in primaries for mayor and for a position on the Northshore Fire District Board in addition to voting on the Countywide veterans and human services levy and on the single-candidate primary for a position on the court of appeals.
