Election Day 2012

Voters have until 8pm tonight to drop off their ballot at drop boxes located throughout Grays Harbor or have their ballots postmarked by end of business day.

Along with the national and state races, locally voters will have chosen a new Grays Harbor County Commissioner as well as a new PUD Commissioner after tonight. In the highest watched races, Aberdeen City Councilman Frank Gordon and retiree Allan Shores are looking to replace Mike Wilson on the County Commission. Incumbent Terry Willis also faces off this election against opponent Wes Cormier. In the PUD race, Chris Thomas and Arie Callaghan look to replace retiring Commissioner Tom Casey.

Statewide, the Governor’s race between Republican Rob McKenna and Democrat Jay Inslee will see an end to months of opposing political ads with one gaining the edge to replace Governor Christine Gregoire.

County Auditor Vern Spatz says that there is a chance this year for the county to break 30,000 voters. That is, if over 80% of registered voters turn out as they did in 2008.

KXRO will be reporting live from the Auditor’s Office tonight, as well as providing interviews with candidates following the election results and updating live on KXRO.com and KXRO on Facebook.
