Today is Election Day, which means ballots are due by 8pm tonight.
We’ve heard reports from readers that the Ballard Library ballot box is (as usual) overflowing, so an easier option is to drop your ballot into the mail. No stamp is required, but it must be postmarked today.
If you’ve lost your ballot, fear not: you can vote in person at one of five voting centers in King County (listed below). And if you’ve recently moved here and forgot to register to vote, this is the first year in Washington state that you can register on election day. The voting centers will process your registration and you can vote on the spot at the following locations:
- Elections Headquarters (919 SW Grady Way, Renton)
- Seattle Elections Annex (500 4th Ave., Room 440)
- Federal Way 320th Library (848 S 320th St.)
- Kenmore City Hall (18120 68th Ave. NE.)
- Bellevue Library (111 100th Ave. NE)
Locally, this election will determine who will take Mike O’Brien’s City Council District 6 seat — Dan Strauss or Heidi Wills. Also on the ballot is the King County Council District 4 position — Jeanne Kohl-Welles is running for reelection against Abigail Doerr. A full list of candidates can be found here, and ballot measures are here.
Results will be posted on the King County Elections website, beginning at 8:15pm.
