Just a few last words before the primary election Tuesday.

Make sure you have voted. Please check your ballot status on the Secretary of State website. Go to voter.votewa.gov to check on the status of your ballot. Enter your name and birthdate, click “submit.” On the left side of the screen, click “Ballot Status.” Scroll to the bottom of the report. It should say “accepted” if you turned it in a couple of days ago. (It takes a day or two to process.) If it doesn’t say “accepted” you should contact the county auditor’s office on Monday.

I’d like to thank all those who have put in the time to knock on doors in their precincts and other key precincts in the county, as well as those who have phone banked and text banked. Your time and effort are appreciated by the candidates. When our candidates get through to the general election, we will be needing your continued assistance.

We only have a few hours left to make our final contacts. Check in with friends and relatives to make sure that they have voted, too. The expected turnout for the primary statewide is 30-35%. With turnout that low, a few hundred votes can make the difference between making it into the general or not.

Thank you again for your support so far.

Richard Reuther

Chair, Benton County Democratic Central Committee
