Slow turnout so far for general election
October 31st, 2013 - 5:25am
(Port Angeles) – With less than a week to go until ballots are due, only about 22 percent of the votes are back to the Clallam County auditor's office.
Auditor Patty Rosand says just over 10 thousand of the more than 46 thousand ballots sent out earlier this month have been returned.
The auditor's Facebook page reports that, so far, the turn out is low for a general election.
It's an off-year election and there are no partisan positions on the local ballot.
The only county-wide issues involved the Port of Port Angeles. Voters will elect a new port commissioner and also decided whether to expand the number of commissioners and change the term lengths.
Voters in Clallam Fire District Two are also deciding a tax levy increase.
Other races include seats on the Port Angeles and Sequim city councils, local school boards and fire district boards.
Statewide, voters are deciding two initiatives.
Voters must have ballot postmarked or back to an official drop box by this Tuesday to have their votes count.
