Headlines and Features

  • Levy/Bond

    "How is the voting going?" We wanted to share what we know so far. Both Thurston and Pierce Counties have daily updates available on their websites as to the number of returned votes. As of February 3, Yelm has 19.71% of the ballots returned in Thurston and 18.98% in Pierce County. This would mean that 2 out of every 10 people have voted. We do not have information on "how" people voted. Those preliminary results will not be published until late on February 9. Read more on how to access drop boxes or ballots by clicking the headline.
