Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Last week County elections officials mailed out nearly 1.4 million ballots.  King County residents should have received their ballots in the mail by today.  You may have heard we’ve had high numbers of ballots returned and drop boxes are filling up much more quickly than usual - - good job, voters!

Please note there have been attempts at vandalism at one ballot drop box which we obviously do not want to happen, as well as ballot boxes being completely full - - which is a sign of record levels of voting but can make it hard for people to slip their ballot into the slot. Elections crews are picking up deposited ballots daily and more times as needed. This happened over the weekend at the Ballard Drop Box, which for years has been the number one in the county for ballots being submitted.

If you need to register or update your registration, you can do so online here until October 26th.  You can track your ballot here.   See this County Elections office page for full information about the November general election.  If you have any questions about registration, voting, returning your ballot or need other election assistance contact the County Elections staff by email at, or by phone at 206-296-VOTE (8683).

As always, I would like to hear from you. You can call me at 206-477-1004 or you can reach me by email at 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
