Friendly Primary Voting Reminder 2019

Remember to vote in the Primary by Tuesday, August 6th!

 

Wondering whom to vote for?

As a reminder, the 46th District has endorsed in all races you will find on your Primary Ballot!

You can find those endorsements by clicking here

 

Your Primary ballot needs to be postmarked no later that August 6th to be counted, and the King County Election Office recommends that to ensure a timely postmark, voters mail their ballots by Friday, August 2nd.

After August 2nd, it is recommended that you take your ballots to a Ballot Drop Box by or on August 6th - Primary Election Day. Drop Boxes are open until 8:00pm sharp on the 6th!

There are drop boxes in Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, and ten inside or very near the 46th District portion of northeast Seattle.  There are others located downtown, as well as many around King County.

Click Here for Ballot Drop Box Locations!

 

Spread the word!  Same Day Registration has arrived in Washington!

If you have a family member, friend or neighbor who needs to register for the primary up to and including on Primary Day, they may do so, and receive an immediate ballot at the following Regional Voting Centers in King County:

  • King County Elections Office in Renton
  • King County Elections Annex Office in the King County Administration Building in downtown Seattle
  • Kenmore City Hall
  • Bellevue Regional Library
