Ready, set, vote! Primary ballots mailed today to all registered voters

Nearly 1.1 million ballots were delivered to the United State Post Office last week and are mailboxes throughout King County.

Ballots were mailed to voters serving in the military and those living overseas and out of state on Friday, July 17 to allow extra transit time for delivery.

Now that King County votes entirely by mail, ballots are automatically sent to all registered voters 20 days before each election in which they are eligible to vote.

There is no need for voters to re-register or request their ballot be sent to them. Ballots must be returned to the King County Elections or postmarked by election day, Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Elections officials remind voters to remember to take their time to correctly sign their ballot envelope.

“This is King County’s second countywide, all-mail election,” said Sherril Huff, King County elections director. “We have many new on-line features available to help voters with the vote-by-mail process, and we also encourage anyone who would like to see their elections office in action to come to our facility in Renton and view ballot processing from our public observation loop.”
