Primary Election - August 7, 2018

Elections present a great deal of responsibility to us, the voters. Whether it is a local, regional, or national election the voters must take it upon themselves to learn all they can about the candidates that will in turn help shape their community's future. 

Elections can be an exciting time for the community going forward, so here we provide a few informational pieces for you to help your decision.

Perhaps the handiest and most accessible piece of information during an election is the Voters' Guide. This publication offers background and statements from each candidate and may showcase their stance on the issues. 

For a list of candidates, to check your registration, and other elections services visit the Mason County Auditor's website.
