Election day for primaries vis upon us tomorrow, which mean it’s time to dig out your ballot if you haven’t done so already.
There are 13 candidates running for Mike O’Brien’s District 6 seat — more than any other district in the city.
If you’re looking for some guidance, the Seattle Times has a go-to list of where each candidate stands on prominent issues, such as taxes, homelessness, development, police presence, and even the alignment of the Burke-Gilman Trail.
If you’re mailing your ballot, it must be postmarked on or before election day (August 6th) and received by your county elections office no later than three days after election day.
You can also drop off your ballot in person at any drop box by 8pm (here’s a map of drop boxes throughout the city). Ballard’s main drop box is at the Ballard Library, on the corner of NW 57th St and 22nd Ave NW.
