Washington's February 19th Primary

Posted: Updated:

Much of the vote is already in for Tuesday's primary. 37 out of 39 Washington counties are voting entirely by mail.

King and Pierce County are the only two where polls will be open until 8:00p.m. For Democrats this $10 million primary is just a popularity contest.

They used their caucuses on February 9th to assign their delegates. The Democratic presidential candidate is Barack Obama.

He has a two to one lead over Hillary Clinton. For the Republicans, their caucuses determined only half of their delegates.

John McCain had the lead over Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul. But their pick will be determined from Tuesday's results.  

Voters have until 8 p.m. on Tuesday to turn in their ballots, at their respective location.
