A voter returns a ballot to a ballot dropbox

King County Elections is sending out ballots to voters, with ballots hitting your mailbox by July 17. You have until Tuesday, Aug. 1, by 8 p.m. to vote.

✔️ When you complete your ballot, return it to a safe and secure King County ballot drop box. There are more than 75 scattered across the county, and they're accessible 24/7. Find the closest drop box near you! You can also mail your ballot — no postage necessary — just be sure to have it postmarked no later than Tuesday, Aug. 1!

✔️ Already voted? Track your ballot.

❓ Misplace your ballot? Not registered to vote? No problem! Head to one of six King County Elections' vote centers. The centers will be open for in-person voting Saturday, Monday, and Tuesday.

❓ What do you need to register to vote? To register to vote, head to an in-person voting center. You will be asked for the last four digits of your social security number. If you can't provide those digits, show a government issued ID or passport and sign a voter registration verifying you are a Washington resident. That's it!
