Primary election ballots will be mailed on Wednesday to all King County voters. Voters’ pamphlets will also be mailed this week, and will arrive separately from the ballot. The Election Day deadline to return ballots is Aug. 16.

Voting begins this week, and people can vote and return their ballot as soon as they receive it. Ballots can be returned at a ballot drop box or through the mail, which requires a first class stamp.

Ballots must be postmarked by Aug. 16 or returned to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on that day. Eleven drop boxes will open on July 28, and locations are listed on the Elections website and in the voters’ pamphlet.

People who do not receive a ballot by Aug. 6 should contact King County Elections for a replacement. The Voter Hotline is available weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., 206-296-8683.
