Local voters will soon receive Special Election ballots

King County Elections mailed out ballots yesterday, April 6, to all registered voters in King County for the April 26 Special Election.

“Every vote is a part of the decision making process that impacts all of us,” saysJulie Wise, Director of King County Elections. “It’s important to vote in every election and return your ballot as early as possible.”

This special election includes 11 ballot measures and King County Elections expect a turnout of 29 percent for this election.

All voters will receive a voters’ pamphlet with all measures in this election. Ballots will include only the measures for which a voter is eligible to vote.

Voters should read and follow directions on their ballots, sign the return envelope, and get ballots back before the April 26 election day deadline. Mailed ballots need a first-class stamp. Voters in Ballard can also return their ballots to the drop box at Ballard Library (5614 22nd Ave NW) by 8 p.m. on April 26.

If you are not yet registered and wish to do so you have until April 18 at 4:30 p.m. to register in person at King County Elections offices (500 4th Ave (Room 440) Seattle) to vote in this election.

Voters who don’t receive a ballot by April 15 or who have questions should call King County Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
