The drop box at the Ballard Neighborhood Service Center, along with others throughout the county, were removed for the Special Election in February as a cost-saving measure. But for this election, it’s back at the library next door (5614 22nd Ave NW). King County has decided to have 11 total ballot drop-off locations, including three in the city of Seattle. “Voters have told us that drop boxes are an essential part of elections,” said Sherril Huff, Director of Elections. “While it’s important to watch the costs of government, voting is a basic right and we want to make sure it remains accessible and convenient.”
The drop boxes will be open starting October 14th and will remain open 24 hours a day until 8 p.m. on November 2. For a list of all available drop boxes, click here. If you would rather mail in your ballot, a first class stamp is required and the ballot must be postmarked by Nov. 2.
