Message from Julie Wise, Director of King County Elections
Last week we mailed ballots for the February 13 Special Election to around 750,000 King County voters. If you live outside the City of Seattle, there’s a good chance you have something to weigh-in on! Eighteen jurisdictions are asking voters to make choices on a total of 34 ballot measures. These are important decisions about our community and I hope you will take the time to vote and return your ballot.
To learn more about what’s on your specific ballot, see your voting history and registration information, or to track your ballot, you can use our My Voter Information application. It’s available in Chinese, English, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese. If you haven’t yet received your ballot by January 29, you can get a replacement ballot here or by calling 206-296-VOTE.
There are several, convenient ways to return your ballot:
- Through the United State Post Office with a first class stamp, postmarked by Election Day.
- At any one of our 55 ballot drop boxes across the County, one of which is located in front of the King County Administration Building on 4th Avenue.
- You can also use one of our three Accessible Voting Centers.
Please encourage your friends, family and neighbors to let their voice be heard and vote. And, if you aren’t eligible to vote on anything in this election, don’t worry – you’ll have ample opportunities later this year from state legislative races to congressional seats and many more. In the meantime, you can always keep up with the latest election news on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and our blog.
Thanks and happy voting!
