ELECTION DAY EVE: Ballot dropoff van in a new spot at West Seattle Stadium

Haven’t voted yet? Don’t miss the chance to choose the first-ever District 1 City Councilmember, to settle the fate of the $930 million Seattle Proposition 1 transportation levy, and to make more than a dozen other decisions. Lots of last-minute voters again this election, judging by how few ballots have been returned so far – in D-1 (West Seattle/South Park), 9,141 out of 60,177. You have until tomorrow evening to vote, and you can do it for free by dropping your ballot off at a King County Elections ballot van or box – the full list is here, and it includes the drop vans at West Seattle Stadium (4432 35th SW, until 5 pm today and 10 am-8 pm tomorrow) and at Greenbridge (8th SW south of SW Roxbury, same hours). If you’ve been to the one in WS before, you’ll notice a new location – we just stopped by for a photo and discovered they’re by the stadium’s west entrance instead of along the driveway (200 ballots today, as of 1 pm). You also can mail your ballot, as long as it’s postmarked by tomorrow, but that’ll cost you 49 cents worth of postage.

    just discovered that (the WS Stadium ballot drop-off van moved), as I entered the lot to drop my ballot; minor panic attack, seeing the sign in usual location, but no van; afraid they had already closed down for the day; thankfully once you drive all the way down, you can see them way off in the corner to your left
    I usually vote on Election Day; but wanted to get my vote in to be counted earlier this year; this is such a critical election for city council seats

    The van location at the stadium is a major bummer for those who actually take the bus. I guess cars rule…

      I hope you will let KC Elections know what you think! I haven’t asked yet why they moved. There was no announcement that they were moving – we didn’t make it to the WS site on Saturday, only to the WC site, with the rain and all, and then today drove to the stadium and were surprised to see them way off in the corner. Someone downtown might have made the decision without even thinking about how inconvenient it is if you’re not in a car. The one in Greenbridge is right up on the street.

    Thank you for posting this! I thought that I needed to drive to Renton to drop it off.

Sorry, comment time is over.
