Election begins as ballots mailed out across the state -- remember to vote!



County auditors began mailing ballots last week for the Nov. 4 general election. This is a crucial election in Washington, where a slim bipartisan majority in the Senate has given employers a seat at the table in the Legislature.

AWB has evaluated candidates based on their attentiveness to business climate issues. Our list of endorsements for legislative candidates and Supreme Court justices is online, as is the 2014 Legislative Review. The Secretary of State's office has an online voter guide with statements and photos from each candidate and, for ballot measures, statements for and against. Don’t delay; complete your ballot and mail it today.
