Washington Mails 3.2 Million Voters' Pamphlets

Posted: Updated:

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The state Elections Division is mailing the voters' pamphlet this week to all 3.2 million households in Washington.
    
The secretary of state's office says there are 18 regional editions, including the Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish versions.
    
The pamphlet averages 32 pages, compared to about 150 pages in last year's general election.
    
The only statewide measures this time are two initiatives: I-517 would grant more time and protection for initiative campaigns. I-522 would require labeling for genetically modified foods.
    
Most of the information in the pamphlet is about local races for mayors, city and county councils and other positions and ballot measures.
    
The pamphlet also is available online through the secretary of state's website.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - One of the great parts about living in Spokane, is if you head out of town in any direction, you're going to run into some beautiful farm land. I grew up south of Spokane, near Plaza, and one of my favorite things to do was to sit on the porch at night and stare south towards Rosalia at all of the rolling hills of wheat, lentils, barley and peas. More >>
