Pairs of candidates move on in 11 Whatcom races

OLYMPIA — Results of the Aug. 6 primary election were certified last week by the Washington Secretary of State’s office. Statewide turnout of 29.56 percent made it the highest odd-year primary since 2009, which came in at 31.04 percent.

The new statewide election management system, VoteWA, performed as expected, said Secretary of State Kim Wyman.

With the new same-day registration law in effect, thousands of individuals were able to register and vote a ballot up to and including Election Day. State election officials are confident VoteWA is ready for the general election in November, she said.
