Today is Primary Election Day, Get Your Ballot In
It's time to turn in your ballot for the primary election. If you are a registered voter your ballot is due in the Yakima County Auditor's office today. County Elections Manager Kathy Fisher tells KIT News that of the 103 ballots sent out on July 18, about 18 percent have been returned. When it's over, Auditor Corky Mattingly expects a 47 percent turnout. If you haven't voted your ballot won't be counted on election night. Your ballot could make a difference in any close races. You can either mail in your ballot or drop it in drop boxes located across from the county courthouse and inside the front doors of the courthouse. You'll also find drop boxes at the Sunnyside Worksource office and Toppenish High School on primary election day.
