Washington Votes by Mail
Washington is one of only two states that votes by mail (Oregon is the other). Ballots and voters pamphlets are arriving this week.
If you want to put your ballot in a drop box, rather than a mail box, King County Elections has physical drop boxes located throughout the county. They are open 24/7 now until November 5, and from 12 am to 8 pm on November 6. in addition, ballot drop off vans will be available from 10 am-5 pm, Nov 2 through Nov 5, and 7 am-8 pm on election day. A van will be in the Northeast corner of Red Square on the University of Washington campus.
Locations and hours of ballot drop boxes and vans in King County are here.
King County voters will receive two voters pamphlets - one from the County and one from the State.
Don't live in King County? The Washington Secretary of State's office has a list of county election departments here.
New to Washington State and still not registered? Although the online and mail registrations have passed, you can still register in person at the county elections departments until October 29.
