Sixteen Washington counties head to the polls
Washington: Today, residents in sixteen counties in the state of Washington headed to polls to cast votes on a wide variety of issues. A total of thirty-eight measures were listed on local county webpages, mostly for tax replacements, increases or continuations in both schools and cities or towns. The Whatcom Transportation Authority Tax has been a rather heated debate, whether the county transportation authority needs more money to function for the benefit of its residents. Not all counties held elections due to the previous election on February 9 which held the majority of local issues for the state for the year.
Results will be listed as the counties report them.
