Primary Ballots are due by August 3

Primary ballots have been mailed out. They are due by August 3. They must be in a ballot dropbox or postmarked by that day. Tri-city mail gets postmarked in Spokane so be sure to mail early enough to make the deadline.

The Primary for this year’s non-partisan elections is in progress. The Benton County Democratic Central Committee respects the non-partisan nature of these elections and is not endorsing any particular candidates. However, we feel that our supporters can and should be actively engaged in these elections. We encourage our supporters to amplify the messages from the candidates of their choice by means of letters to the editor, social media, and personal contact. We also urge our supporters to contribute funds and time to their chosen candidates.

We will, of course, be outdoors. please observe appropriate COVID-19 protocols.
