Mail-in ballot deadline approaching

Don’t forget that your ballot for King County’s first all-mail election must be postmarked by Tuesday. For a number of people, this will be the first time they’ve voted by mail.
Ballots must be inserted into the security envelope, then the outer envelope with the voter oath must be signed. If there’s more than one voter in your household, don’t try to put all the ballots into just one envelope to save on postage.

As required by law, the signature on every absentee envelope is verified against the voter’s registration record. Be sure to use your legal, professional signature and not simply your initials. If your signature has changed over the years, please update your records with King County Elections because your signature makes your vote count.

Instead of mailing, ballots without postage can be returned to a 24-hour ballot drop box until 8 p.m. on Election Day. Click here for ballot drop box locations.
For the first time, you can track the progress of your ballot online, to see if it’s been received by the elections office and your signature has been verified.
And if you haven’t received your ballot in the mail yet, call 206-296-VOTE (8683).
