Washington mails voter’s pamphlets

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The state Elections Division is mailing the voters’ pamphlet this week to all 3.2 million households in Washington.

The secretary of state’s office says there are 18 regional editions, including the Chinese, Vietnamese and Spanish versions.

The pamphlet averages 32 pages, compared to about 150 pages in last year’s general election.

The only statewide measures this time are two initiatives: I-517, granting more time and protection for initiative campaigns. I-522, requiring labeling for genetically modified foods.

Most of the information in the pamphlet is about local races for mayors, city and county councils and other positions and ballot measures.

The pamphlet also is available online through the secretary of state’s website.
