OLYMPIA, Wash. - Voters had until 8 p.m. Tuesday to drop off ballots or they must have the mail-in ballots postmarked before midnight to count in Tuesday's special election in Washington.
The Secretary of State's office says 270 of 283 measures are levies or bonds in 220 school districts. That almost triples last year's 100 measures in 84 districts. Elections are being held in 36 counties.
Elections were held in 36 counties with about 59 percent of the registered voters in the state. The only counties not having an election are Clallam, Ferry and Garfield. Last year's February election involved 31 percent of state voters.
In King County 18 jurisdictions, including 16 school districts, have a total of 33 measures on ballots this election. For more information see www.kingcounty.gov/elections
