Frequently asked questions

Q: Where does Pacific NW Portal pull these numbers from?

A: We get our election results data directly from the Secretary of State and county elections officials across Washington. The percentages above, assuming our system has been able to poll for updates successfully, should be the same as what you'll find on vote.wa.gov or the website of your local county auditor. We poll for updates in accordance with the release schedules set forth by county elections officials. Please note that these are unofficial results and subject to change.

Q: Why are only a few dozen races shown?

A: Because there are thousands of local races being decided across the state, and showing them all on one page would be impractical and unwise. Our goal isn't to duplicate what elections officials provide, but rather to make it easier to see the marquee and hot races in one place, so you don't have to click, click, and click to find what you're most interested in finding results for. We keep it simple, so you can see a lot just by doing a little bit of scrolling. All we show you are candidate names, photos, party affiliation or another descriptor, and the percentage of the vote they are currently receiving. That's it. To see how many votes the candidate (or ballot measure) actually got, you'll want to browse the election returns provided by the Secretary of State or your county auditor.

Q: Who decides which races are the "hot" races?

A: The staff and board of the Northwest Progressive Institute make those decisions, but we are significantly influenced by reader feedback. Many of the races above were requested for inclusion by readers like you.
