Voting for Washington’s 2020 Presidential Primary is nearly underway with ballots set for mailing today.
Washington State’s Presidential Primary is Tuesday, March 10.
Ballots will be mailed to all registered voters.
Voters should see the State Voter Pamphlet arriving in their mailbox this week, Clallam County elections officials said.
Currently, only the Democratic and Republican Parties qualify as major political parties. For this election only, voters who choose to participate are required to declare a party affiliation in order to vote. Each ballot packet includes an instruction sheet to ensure votes cast in the election are counted.
Both party declarations are included on the ballot return envelope, and candidates from both parties appear on the consolidated ballot.
Voters must mark one party declaration box and can only choose one candidate in their declared party for their ballot to count.
Ballots must be postmarked by March 10, or returned to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. that day.
March 2 is the deadline for Clallam County and Jefferson County elections departments to receive registrations submitted by mail or online.
In-person registrations may be received up to 8 p.m. on Election Day at the Auditor’s Office in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles and the Jefferson County Courthouse, 1820 Jefferson St.
