Provisional Ballot Casting Rate - 2006

>2 percent of ballots cast at polls


However, note that this figure is misleading, because it measures provisional ballots as a percentage of polling place ballots (not as a percentage of overall ballots cast).  Because Washington only has traditional polling place voting in two counties, the denominator in this calculation is very small, inflating the figure.  Only 18,825 provisional ballots were cast in Washington in 2006.
