King County Elections mailed nearly 1.3 million ballots to voters earlier this week on October 19.
Most ballots should have already arrived at Ballard homes.
King County voters also will begin receiving their voters’ pamphlet in the mail this week. Voters will receive two voters’ pamphlets, a local one from King County and a state one from the Office of the Secretary of State.
Voters’ pamphlets are also available online, at Seattle and King County libraries, and at the King County Elections office in Renton.
Ballots can be returned through the Postal Service, which requires a first class stamp, or they may be returned to the Ballot Drop Box located outside Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW).
Ballots must be postmarked by November 8 or returned to a ballot drop box by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
“I encourage everyone to vote, and vote early,” said Julie Wise, Director of King County Elections. “This is an important election so make sure your voice is heard.”
King County citizens not currently registered to vote in Washington can register in person through 6 p.m. on Monday, October 31 at the King County Elections office in Renton or through 4:30 p.m. on Monday, October 31 at the Voter Registration Annex downtown.
Voters who don’t receive a ballot by October 24 or who have questions should call King County Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
