Washingtonians won’t be electing a governor or U.S. senator this election, but they will weigh in on issues like gun background checks and class sizes. And voters in central Washington will see a first for the state — two members of the same party on the fall ballot in a congressional race.
A group calling itself Class Size Counts is collecting signatures for a Washington ballot initiative that would decrease call sizes in public schools.
