OLYMPIA, Wash. -- Washington voters have a crowded primary ballot to decide on, choosing which candidates to advance to the general ballot on dozens of races ranging from governor to the Supreme Court.

Secretary of State Sam Reed is predicting a 46 percent turnout for Tuesday s primary, though it s expected that only about half of the ballots will be returned by election night.

Washington is a vote-by-mail state, and all of Washington state s 3.7 million voters received their ballots weeks ago. Voters have to have them postmarked and in the mail by Tuesday or can drop them off at specialized boxes around the state by 8 p.m. Ballots were sent out to voters last month.
