Where You Can Drop Off Your 2020 Elections Vote-By-Mail Ballot In Seattle

Ballots have been sent out… now it’s time to vote!

So you’ve decided to vote by mail in Seattle for the 2020 elections — fantastic! You have likely already received your ballot in the mail by now since they were sent out last week. To complete the voting process, it’s time to fill out the ballot and send it in.

(If you haven’t received your ballot yet, check here to confirm that you’re registered to vote and have your current mailing address updated. You have up to October 26 to register to vote.) 

The process is simple: once you have your ballot in hand, all you have to do is complete it, sign it, and then submit it by either sending it by mail (no stamp required) or dropping it off at one of the official drop boxes scattered throughout Seattle. 

You have until 8 pm on Tuesday, November 3 to get your ballot into one of the official drop boxes. If sending it by mail, it must be postmarked by November 3. The USPS recommends that ballots be mailed a week before Election Day.

But where are the official drop boxes in Seattle? To make sure you’re informed of where you can drop off your ballot, we’ve compiled a list of official ballot drop boxes.

According to King County Elections, ballot drop boxes have started to fill up fast, with 60,000 ballots having already been dropped off around the country within the first five days. However, with 1.4 million voters in King County, there are still many more ballots expected.

If you end up not being able to mail in your vote before the deadline, you can always go vote in person before 8 pm on November 3.

Regardless of whether you choose to vote by mail, in-person, or online, it is important to make sure you get your vote in (the earlier, the better!) as it allows your voice to be heard.
