Ballots for this year's Yakima County elections have been in the hands of registered voters for some time now. Will you be taking part in the voting process this time around?

Positions for school boards, utility and fire districts, city and town councils, tax measures and state initiatives will all be decided by the electorate in Washington State next week. In the City of Yakima alone, two city council races and a tax measure will be on the ballot.

Many people term this election as an "off-year" election, meaning that no national offices will be voted on. Will you be casting a ballot this election?

Catch election coverage next Tuesday evening starting at 7:30 p.m. on Newstalk KIT.
