Washington's new Secretary Of State wants primary voters' pamphlets
OLYMPIA, Wash. – Washington’s new Secretary of State Kim Wyman wants printed voters’ pamphlets in statewide and legislative primary elections. She’s asking state lawmakers to pay the $1 million cost. Currently it’s up to county auditors to decide whether to print voters’ pamphlets for those primaries and some choose not to.
Wyman says the handy guides are especially important in low-profile races.
“We’re going to work to get funding for that so that in the even years when all of state-wide offices and judicial offices are on the ballot, people have information on the primary.”
Wyman says many elections are decided in the primaries. And she adds, some voters can’t access online voter guides because they don’t have a computer.
