With mail-only elections, dropping off your ballot or sticking it in the mailbox is much different than going to the polls. After the primary, ElaineinBallard wrote in comments, “It would be great to organize a recurring election-day event around the drop box. Thanks for voting, have a cupcake, meet and greet your neighbors. This could help fill the void left by the demise of in-person voting.”
On election day next Tuesday, the Department of Neighborhoods will be holding an open house at the Neighborhood Service Center (5604 22nd Ave NW) from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. (when the ballot box closes). After dropping off your ballot, enjoy refreshments and meet your neighbors. There will be giveaways, information on how you can get involved with civic activities and resource information about city services.
