Editor's note: The Washington state primary is a vote-by-mail contest, and ballots had to be postmarked or deposited by 8 p.m. PT.

On the GOP side, Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee, but former candidates Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Ben Carson appear on the state's ballots, CNN reports. - Stephanie
