KREM 2 News has crews spread out across the Northwest to cover Election 2012.

Reporters will be live throughout the night in locations from Seattle to North Idaho.

Turnout is always high on an election night, but poll workers say it’s been especially high this year.

Two-thirds of registered voters visited polls today in Spokane Co. or mailed in their last minute ballots.

Washington voters can cast their votes by mail, at the election’s office, or at a drop box outside local libraries and the STA Plaza until 8 p.m.

Ballots in Wash. include a long list of issues and candidates. Voters will pick a new governor, and a U.S. Senator. They’ll also vote of Ref. 74 to decide whether same-sex couples can marry, as well as Initiative 502, which could legalize the production and sale of marijuana.

Eastern Washington ballots include extra races. Voters will choose between Republican Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Democrat Rich Cowan.

Spokane Co. will also choose new county commissioners.

North Idaho will choose a new sheriff in Kootenai Co., as well as congressmen.

The other hotly contested races in Idaho will focus on schools. Voters will decide on Propositions 1, 2 and 3.
