Make sure to read and follow directions on your ballot, sign the return envelope, and get it back before the August 1 election day deadline. Here’s how to return your ballot:
By mail: Put a first-class stamp on your ballot and mail it back to King County Elections. Your ballot must be postmarked by election day.
Ballot drop box: Return your ballot to any one of the 53 ballot drop-off locations; no stamp required. Your ballot must be returned to a ballot drop-off location by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
Accessible voting centers: King County accessible voting centers (AVCs) are open to voters who may have difficulty completing their mail ballot. Anyone who would like to vote at an AVC may do so.
Please encourage your friends, family and neighbors to let their voice be heard and vote.
