As of 8pm this evening, the early returns for the 2022 August Primary have been posted. Counting will continue over the coming weeks, usually with daily counts being released after 4pm. The Urbanist Elections Committee made endorsements in a long list of state legislative races and one congressional race.

Below is a roundup of the early results, including non-endorsed races across Western Washington. Only the top three vote-getting candidates are shown, if over 10%. The Urbanist Elections Committee did not endorse in all races noted if candidates did not respond to the endorsement process or the committee did pick a race for endorsement. Only the top two candidates will move to the general election in November.

Key: INC = Incumbent, * = Endorsed Candidate, DEM = Democrat, REP = Republican, IND = Independent
