  • The County Auditor’s office is saying that 15 percent of the 107, 000 ballots sent to Yakima County voters have been returned.

    County Auditor Corky Holloway says this is an off-year election so she expects about 46 percent of ballots to be returned by election day. “I know the Secretary of State’s office is predicting a 51 percent turnout. We’re looking at about 46 percent but I’m hoping more people turn in ballots next week.”

    While it is an off-year election Holloway says the ballot is still full of issues and candidate races including two city council races in Yakima and Proposition One, the tax limiting issue and Statewide initiatives.

    Your ballot is due on Election day. You can either mail it in or place your ballot in a drop box on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in front of the Yakima County Courthouse.
