You get to decide Tuesday who will not be Seattle’s next mayor — if you postmark your primary election ballot by Tuesday. Only the top two candidates, out of nine total, will advance to the general election.

Other can’t-miss races on the ballot: Seattle City Council, Seattle School Board, Port of Seattle Commission, and Bellevue City Council.

The Aug. 6 primary ballot is short and powerful, a shot of tequila for our future.

Here is my post on the top five reasons to vote in this primary.

Trying to figure out how to vote? Here is all the information from King County Elections. If you can’t find a stamp, the division provides drop-off ballot boxes around the county.

Here are our editorial board’s recommendations to voters. We interview and research them so you don’t have to.
