When are ballots due?

In Washington, ballots must be postmarked by election day, Tuesday 11/3.

If you're choosing to return your ballot using the mail, we recommend mailing it no later than Thursday, 10/29.  If you need to mail it after that, try and bring it directly to a post office to avoid delays that could result in your ballot being postmarked after election day.  

Ballot drop boxes are accessible around the state and will be open until 24 hours a day until election day.  Ballot drop boxes will be closed at 8:00pm on election day, 11/3. 

We recommend making a plan ahead of time so you know when you'll have some time to fill in your ballot, when you plan to turn in your ballot, and which method you plan to use - mail or a ballot drop box.

I haven't received my ballot.

If you still have not received your ballot by 10/19/2020 you should call your county elections office to understand options for accessing your ballot.

Pierce County: 253-798-VOTE (8683)

King County: 206-296-VOTE (8683)

Are drop boxes safe? Is the mail safe? 

Yes.  We in Washington are used to vote-by-mail elections with operations that preserve the validity of our elections. 

Drop boxes and mail are both safe options to return your ballot. Make sure you leave time for your ballot to be properly postmarked if you opt for mail-in.
