Through this evening, the percentage of mail-in ballots returned in the counties making such data available online (at least that this blogger is aware of):
King - 46.95%
Pierce [pdf] - 53.82%
Spokane [pdf] - 60.26%
Snohomish [pdf] - 51.74%
Clark - 58.65%%
Yakima [pdf] - 57.45%
Kittitas - 63.69%
Benton [pdf] (not included in original post): 62.98%
Note that King & Pierce still have poll voting available so ballot returns there are not a reflection of total potential ballots cast. Other variables in the percentages reported in larger counties, especially King, Pierce, and Snohomish, discussed here.
And yes, the numbers above indicate some potentially monstrous turnout in east of the Cascades. All I can say is: more, please.
