2012 Election

Election Party Roundup: Primary 2012

By Erica C. Barnett August 6, 2012

By now, of course,  you've filled out your ballot---all the way from King County Proposition 1, the juvenile-justice center levy, to the Seattle library levy on the flip side (and if not, vote yes for libraries!), so you're probably wondering where to go to celebrate or sob tomorrow night.

So, as usual, we've rounded up a list of election night parties in contested local races (like the hotly contested 1st Congressional and 36th LD races) as well as some all-purpose primary parties and pre-funks. In some cases, we haven't been able to locate information; email us at [email protected] if you want your event included.

Links to event info where available; we'll update with new events as we get 'em.
