Ballots for the august primary election, will go out this week.

Yakima Valley voters should be receiving ballots in their mailbox Thursday and Friday.

There are seats open all across the county, but the city of Yakima has the most requested seats…the three available Yakima city council seats.

The auditor’s office reminding the community that not everyone will receive a primary ballot.

“41,000 voters as of right now should be participating somewhere between 41,000 and 41,500 voters, and again all primary residents will not receive a ballot only the races that have three or more contestants in each race,” said Yakima County auditor Charles Ross.

Voters must remember to sign their ballot… or it won’t count.

Ballots have to be turned in by August 1.
