What’s on the February 9 ballot?
The second Tuesday in February is Election Day for many voters, but not all.
When a ballot question is submitted to the local County Auditor by your city, town, or local district, that question (known as a resolution) calls for a "Special Election." Whether you're eligible to vote in the February 9 Election depends on what's happening in your community.
If you are eligible, your ballot will be mailed out no later than January 22. For more information, contact your county elections office or visit VoteWA.gov.
