It’s Election Day morning, which means you still have a few hours to help decide the fate of several important Camas-Washougal races, including contested city council positions in both cities.

Washougal voters have the opportunity to choose a new mayor, new city councilor and new school board member. In Camas, the only contested race is for City Councilwoman Melissa Smith’s ward 1, position 2 seat.

As of 10 a.m. this morning, only 22 percent of eligible Clark County voters — 60,373 out of 272,882 — had returned their ballots.

Mailed-in ballots must be postmarked with today’s date, Nov. 7. Voters also can opt to drop their ballot off at one of many official Clark County ballot boxes by 8 p.m. tonight. For a list of drive-up ballot boxes, click here. To see the Election Day ballot drop sites, click here.

Preliminary results will start to come in around 8:30 p.m. tonight. Look for updates on the Post-Record’s site, on our Facebook and Twitter accounts and in the Thursday, Nov. 9 print edition of the Camas-Washougal Post-Record.
