Vote-by-mail ballots now available in Pasco

Pasco elections supervisor Brian Corley is taking orders for vote-by-mail ballots for the upcoming primary election on Aug. 26.

Voters seeking mail-in ballots can call the elections office, 800-851-8754, or visit

The office has seen an uptick in mail-in ballots the past few years. On Tuesday, it will mail out 40,000 ballots to voters with requests already on file. That's a 300 percent increase from four years ago.

Corley says voters like the convenience of filling out ballots from home.

This year, the District 4 County Commission race will be decided in the primary, which Corley is calling a "universal primary" because it will be like a general election.

With no Democrats are running in the race — Republicans Henry Wilson and Mike Wells Jr. are the only candidates to qualify — the primary election will be open to all registered voters, whether Democrat, Republican, no party affiliation, or minor party affiliation, such as Libertarian or Green Party.

And while commissioners represent districts, they run for office "at large," meaning, in this case, that the race for District 4, which comprises parts of central Pasco north of State Road 54, is open to voters from across the county.

Mail-in ballots must be returned to the elections office no later than 7 p.m. Aug. 26. Postage is 49 cents.
