Pursuant to RCW 29A.60.240, upon completion of the canvass of each county auditor's abstract of votes and no later than seventeen days following the primary, the secretary of state shall certify to the appropriate county auditors the returns for all state ballot measures, federal and statewide offices, and those legislative and judicial offices whose jurisdiction encompasses more than one county. In the event the secretary of state is unable to certify all or part of a primary election seventeen days following that primary because he or she has not received a copy of a county canvass report from one or more counties, or because there are discrepancies on a received report, he or she shall certify the state ballot measures and candidates for which completed abstracts have been received, and provide reasons which render him or her unable to certify the entire primary. The certification of the remainder of the primary shall take place when all outstanding county canvass reports have been received and filed.
