The first ballots cast in the Aug. 2 primary election have been processed and election officials say they will post results once a day.

The top two finishers in each primary race, even if they are in the same party, will advance to the Nov. 8 general election. 

The results so far are below, but if you want to see more details visit the King County election results page or the Secretary of State’s Office website for statewide results

County Canvassing Boards will certify the results and transmit them to the Washington Secretary of State’s Office on Aug. 16.
