OLYMPIA, Wash. – The results of the Nov. 8 midterm elections were certified on Thursday, Dec. 8. A memo from Secretary of State Steve Hobbs’ office states that more than 3.06 million active voters cast their ballots.

“The 2022 midterm election’s excellent turnout shows how strongly Washingtonians were engaged with the issues and races on the ballot,” Hobbs said. “We thank the voters for their participation, and we are grateful for their commitment to the foundation of our democracy.”

4.8 million people were eligible to vote this election season. According to Hobbs, this year had the highest number of registered voters on the rolls for any Washington midterm.

“While we are pleased with the voter turnout, we are continuing our efforts to expand voter outreach, strengthen election security, and fight election misinformation, which we believe will increase voter participation and confidence in future elections,” Hobbs said.
