Statewide Poll Says Voters Liked New Primary Ballot
OLYMPIA, Wash-- The Secretary of State, Sam Reed, says the Top 2 Primary Voting System was a big hit. A statewide poll of 500 voters shows 76 percent like the Top 2 system. This was the first primary where voters did not have to choose a party.
Those who were polled also voted in the 2006 Pick-A-Party Primary. Ballots are still being counted from last week, more than 1.4 million ballots have been counted so far.
