What’s on the August 4 Primary ballot?
The first Tuesday in August is Election Day for many voters, but not all. This depends on what's happening in your community.
In 2021, primary ballots are mailed out July 16 and include offices and measures for local districts such as city, school, fire, hospital, port, water and others. Whether there's a primary where you live can depend on the number of candidates who filed for an office and if a district submitted a ballot question.
Review the searchable list of candidates or contact your county elections office to learn more about what's on the ballot. Asotin and Garfield counties do not have any primaries.
