Many voters have already received their ballots for the Washington State primary election, scheduled for Aug. 7, 2012, and the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) is finalizing the list of candidates it plans to support through CULAC and CULAF.
NWCUA Vice President of Legislative Affairs Mark Minickiello said that the Association’s list, which is available online, may be updated for the general election in November depending on the outcome of some primary races.
In Washington’s primary election, only the top two vote-getters in each race, regardless of party, advance to the general election.
As voters continue researching and preparing for the election, a number of resources are available to add background and insight. The Washington Secretary of State’s 2012 Primary Voters' Guide gives voters access to elected office descriptions and in-depth information about the candidates. Voters can also hear directly from the candidates using TVW's 2012 Video Voters' Guide.
Often called the Washington state version of C-SPAN, TVW is a private non-profit statewide cable TV network that provides unedited gavel-to-gavel television coverage of state government, elections and public policy events.
On TVW, voters can watch unedited video statements from candidates for 12 statewide elected offices—on statewide cable TV and online at tvw.org—via the 2012 Video Voters' Guide, which is produced by TVW in conjunction with the Washington Secretary of State.
The 2012 Video Voters' Guide includes statements from candidates for the following offices:

Washington State Treasurer Jim McIntire, running unopposed, decided not to tape a statement.
