Dear Friends and Neighbors,

As you know, tomorrow is Election Day.  Councilmembers and staff received an update today from County Elections Director Julie Wise (details below), including that over one million ballots have been returned already, with turnout over 75% so far.

With all the misinformation out there, I want to remind people that – as with every election – election officials continue counting all ballots received or postmarked by 8 p.m. tomorrow until all votes have been counted.  The King County results will be updated and posted daily as the count continues (see details below).

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 jeanne.kohl-welles@kingcounty.gov. 

All the best and I hope you are staying safe.
