You’ve voted your ballot, but now what? Drop boxes now open
Ballots for the November 3 General Election have been delivered to mailboxes throughout King County and will continue arriving through the weekend. Voted ballots can be returned by mail or dropped off, beginning today, at any of our ballot drop boxes.
“Elections has placed drop boxes at locations where voters are already visiting; we want to make voting and returning your mail ballot as easy as possible,” said King County Elections’ superintendent Evelyn Arnold. “Many voters like to use the ballot drop boxes because they offer a sense of connection to Elections and it saves them the cost of a stamp.”
Elections continues to partner with King County Library Systems and Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods for many of the drop locations.
Ballots returned at one of the following 24-hour drop boxes do not need postage and must be dropped off by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, November 3.
