SEATTLE — Just one day away from the 2022 midterm elections, and voter turnout is trending lower than the 2018 midterms, according to King County Elections.

-snip-

“We’re about 36% turnout, that’s about half a million ballots here at the King County Elections headquarters that are being processed," said Julie Wise, the director of King County Elections.

In 2018, King County Elections had 44% of ballots turned in at this point in the election.

As of Friday, 31.97% of ballots were returned in the State of Washington. At the same time in 2018, 38.39% were turned in according to the Secretary of State.

I heard it on the news and then remembered I could see stats at the SOS website. It kinda floored me such low turn out. It kinda has me worried mostly about the senate race.
