Election officials: Seattle-area voters should mail ballots by Friday

SEATTLE — If you’re mailing your ballot, election officials say Seattle-area voters should do it by Friday.

All ballots postmarked by Nov. 3 will be counted, but officials recommend mailing no later than Friday to guarantee the deadline is met.

After Friday, the safest option is for voters to take their ballots to one of King County’s 73 drop boxes, which are open until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

If you still need to register to vote, get a replacement ballot or need help casting your ballot, you can visit the King County Elections Vote Center in the CenturyLink Field Event Center on Saturday, October 31, Monday, November 2, and Tuesday, November 3.

There’s drive-up service for those in cars.

Those inside the event center should wear masks or will be provided with one.

King County Elections staff will be masked, wearing gloves, and equipped with face shields to deter the spread of COVID-19.
