Happening now: 1st of 3 pre-primary days for West Seattle ballot-dropoff van

August 3, 2013 at 2:07 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle politics | 6 Comments

Anthony is one of the friendly King County Elections reps you’ll find at the official ballot-dropoff van in West Seattle, open until 5 pm today, 10 am-5 pm Monday, and 10 am-8 pm Tuesday. As with previous visits, the van is parked along the driveway into the West Seattle Stadium parking lot (from the northbound side of 35th SW, just south of SW Avalon Way). This year, there’s a White Center dropoff van too, same hours, at 9720 8th SW by the Greenbridge Library. If you’re looking for a fixed-location 24-hour box (until 8 pm Tuesday), the nearest ones are downtown and in Burien – all listed here. No stamp needed if you drop off your ballot at a van or box BUT if you mail it – do be sure it’s stamped.

  1. The drop off at W.S.G.C blocks the drive area to parking stalls.
    It should be refigured.

  2. A cardboard box with plastic strapping??
    Very secure.
    Cantwell and Gregoire win again! Oh wait . .What do you mean they’re not up for re-election

  3. LTS, this time it did seem like the van was parked a little further down the driveway than the past two times; we had a little trouble squeezing our not-that-big car through so we could park and walk over to take their photo …

  4. I had no problem at 11:30 this morning- very appreciative of this service. Also box didn’t bother me at all.

  5. We just missed you – we were there at approximately 11:22 :) – Would be great if they bring back the round-the-clock box someday, but absent that, I still miss old-fashioned voting, so being able to deliver a ballot (I dropped mine off while we were there to take a photo) directly to someone from KC Elections is the next best thing … TR

  6. I still prefer to vote in the booth. However at the very least they could have a secured drop box in West Seattle. Asinine I have to go downtown if I do not want to use a stamp (out of principle).
