Volunteer to close a drop box with King County Elections on November 3

Looking for some Election Day excitement? Meet your neighbors and continue your commitment to public service by volunteering as a drop box closer. Drop box closers are the friendly face the public sees on Election Day, ensuring that every vote is counted, and every voice is heard.

  • Who: You and your co-workers
  • What: Closing ballot drop boxes across King County
  • When: Election night, Tuesday, Nov. 3 from 6-8:30 p.m.
  • Where: A drop box location near you
  • Sign up: Click here.

Most voters wait until Election Day to return their ballots and drop boxes are often busiest in the last few hours of voting. We need your help to provide customer service and assistance to voters using this last opportunity to return their ballots. Sign up and join us for a fun and fulfilling experience helping your neighbors experience the excitement and community of casting their ballots.

You’ll be partnered with Elections staff and no experience is necessary – we provide all the training you need.

All locations are outside, and we ask that volunteers wear masks to help prevent the spread of CoVID-19. If you do not have a mask, we can provide one for you. More information about precautions being taken will be provided to all volunteers ahead of Election Day.

Our colleagues who volunteered in the August Primary described their experiences as rewarding, safe, and inspiring. Join us by signing up to help with the Primary election on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020 from 6-8:30 p.m.

Please note that this volunteer opportunity is for current King County employees only and is not open to those outside of King County employment, including friends and family.
