Primary election ballots are out
This election, voters have the opportunity to weigh in on 52 offices including statewide offices such as Governor, Attorney General, Superintendent of Public Instruction, Congressional representatives, and state legislative seats. Some voters will also have measures from their local fire district on their ballots. Ballots are due by Election Day, August 4, and can be mailed with no stamp necessary or dropped in one of the 69 drop box locations across the county. If mailing a ballot, Elections recommends doing so by the Friday before Election Day to ensure the all-important on-time postmark.
There is still time to register to vote or update voter registration if voters have moved or changed their name recently. Online registration is open until July 27. After that, visit Elections in person at the headquarters in Renton or at the CenturyLink Field Event Center. Click here for addresses and hours.
For questions or assistance in making sure your vote counts, contact Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
