ELECTION 2013 | Primary election today in Kitsap County
Local voters must have their ballots postmarked today, Aug. 6 or returned to the drop box by 8 p.m. for this years’ primary election. Ballots also can be returned to Kitsap County Auditor’s Office, 619 Division St., during business hours.
Locally, this year’s primary is light with a Port Orchard city council race and West Sound Utility District commissioner's position up for grabs. The top two vote-getters in each race advance to the Nov. 5 general election.
Secretary of State Kim Wyman said that while odd-year elections normally have lower turnout due to a lack of attention-grabbing statewide, legislative or federal races, they still matter.
State election officials are predicting about a 30 percent voter turnout..
