OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Voting ends Tuesday in special elections in 32 of Washington’s 39 counties.

The secretary of state’s office says more than a million voters — nearly a third of the state’s voters — were asked to decide 95 measures in 81 districts.

Most of the issues are school levies. Seattle has the largest: a $552 million operations levy to provide about a quarter of the district’s budget and a $695 million capital levy for school construction and upgrades including Wi-Fi in every school.
