County elections offices will be counting ballots and releasing their first results from the 2023 general election after polls close at 8 p.m on Nov. 7.

Updated vote counts will be released every afternoon this week at around 4 p.m. Washington counties will certify their results on Nov. 28 and send them to the Washington Secretary of State’s Office, which has until Dec. 7 to certify the election. 

On Wednesday morning, elections offices in King, Pierce, Skagit and Spokane counties were evacuated after elections workers in each office opened envelopes containing an unknown white powder. Offices in King, Pierce and Spokane have reopened, but ballot counts for Wednesday in all four counties may be affected due to the delay.  

For more detail, visit the King County election results page or check other county election offices for their results. If you still have questions about voting in Washington or the status of your ballot, check out the FAQ section of the Crosscut Voter Guide or find more information here.
