Ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday

It’s a little harder to remember when Election Day is now, since King County voters no longer go to an actual polling place, instead voting by mail. So here’s a little reminder: Ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, Feb. 9 in order to count.
And King County has removed all but two of its drop boxes, so if you can’t make it to the post office by 5 p.m. Tuesday, you’ll have to drop it into a free drop box at the King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave. in downtown Seattle, or at King County Elections Headquarters, 9010 East Marginal Way S. in Tukwila.
You can also drop it off at one of King County’s three accessible voting centers, including one at Seattle’s Union Station 401 S. Jackson St., until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
On the ballot in Seattle are two Seattle Public School measures to renew existing Operating and Capital levies. There’s a student-led rally in support of the measures from 12-1 p.m. Saturday at the Green Lake Boat House, 5900 W. Green Lake Way N., followed by a walk around the lake.
