In Washington State, we vote by mail. Ballots are mailed 20 days prior to the election and earlier to overseas and service voters. Ballots must be returned via mail or a ballot drop box. Your ballot must be postmarked by election day. Don’t wait until the last minute!
New this year! Voters will receive prepaid envelops to return their ballots. For those wishing to utilize a drop box, here are both King and Pierce County Ballot drop box locations:
