Jefferson County primary ends today

THE “PICK A PARTY”‘ all-mail primary election ends tonight at 8.

Voters who haven’t completed a ballot — there are three, two partisan and one nonpartisan-only, from which to choose one — must mail their ballots today in time for a Sept. 19 postmark in the return envelope provided.

Or they may take their ballots to the dropbox at the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St., Port Townsend, until 8 p.m.

For last-minute voters, a limited supply of the free Peninsula Daily News’ Primary 2006 Voter’s Guide is still available at public libraries, the courthouse and other public buildings, as well as the PDN’s office at 1939 E. Sims Way, Port Townsend.

The County Auditor’s Office is expected to post returns starting around 8:30 p.m. at www.co.jefferson.wa.us/auditor/Elections/Elections.asp.

Statewide returns will be posted on the secretary of state’s Web site at www.vote.wa.gov.
