[SEATTLE, WASHINGTON] – Ahead of the August 1 primary election, the League of Women Voters of Washington offers the nonpartisan election resource VOTE411.org. This “one-stop shop” for election information provides assistance for Washington voters so they can make their best voting decision.

“The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan organization that does not endorse candidates. Instead, we provide VOTE411 as a tool to empower voters to make their own informed choices," said Mary Coltrane, President of the League of Women Voters of Washington. "All candidates for a race receive the same questions, and voters can see their responses displayed side-by-side for easy comparison. Our goal is to ensure that voters have access to accurate and unbiased information."

VOTE411's personalized voter guide asks candidates to answer questions from the community using their own words and enabling voters to gain deeper insights into their stances on important issues. This feature enhances transparency and fosters direct engagement between candidates and voters.

"The League of Women Voters of Washington is dedicated to serving all voters; we proudly publish this online guide as a service to Washington state," said Coltrane. "We encourage voters to explore VOTE411 and take advantage of the comprehensive information it provides. Whether you are a first-time voter or a seasoned participant in the electoral process, VOTE411 will help you navigate the August 1 primary election with confidence."

The 18-day voting period for the primary election begins on July 14 and concludes on August 1. To access VOTE411 and explore the personalized voter guide, please visit VOTE411.org. Voters are encouraged to reach out to candidates who haven’t responded to the voter guide questions and ask them to respond.
