Washington state has been one of the leaders in vote-by-mail elections and by almost all accounts it has been a huge success.

The year that wraps up today has been a big one for The Wenatchee World newsroom. Once again, wildfires were our top story as they burned in wide-ranging areas of our region. Our news team worked incredibly hard bringing you all the details, personal stories and images.
Each of the past four summers, The Wenatchee World newsroom has had an injection of youthful enthusiasm, curiosity and talent that has made life more interesting for us while bolstering and freshening our news reports for you.
