Upcoming election

With election day just around the corner, folks should start planning now how they’re going to vote.

Of course, before you cast a ballot, you need to be registered. Monday, Oct. 26, is the final day you can register to vote online or by mail.

To register online, head to https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx. To register by mail, you can request registration forms by going online to https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/register-mail.aspx or by printing a form at home by visiting https://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/vrf_print_2020_english.pdf.

To register in person, voters in King County can head to 919 Southwest Grady Way in Renton, whereas Buckley residents can head on down to 2501 S. 35th St. Suite C in Tacoma. This can be done on election day, Nov. 3.

If you’re already registered to vote, then you’ll soon receive a ballot in the mail. King County voters’ will receive their ballots after they’re mailed out today, Oct. 14, and Pierce County is mailing its ballots out Oct. 16.

To return your ballot, you can simply stick it in the mail (no postage required) by Nov. 3. However, Washington’s Secretary of State recommends mailing your ballot one week before election day to make sure it’s counted.

You can also drop your ballot off at a ballot box near you – King County voters will find one at the Enumclaw or Black Diamond library, whereas Pierce County voters will find one at the Buckley library, the South Prairie Fire Department (350 SR 162 E South Prairie), and Wilkeson Town Hall (540 Church St, Wilkeson).
