West Seattle gets a ballot dropbox, after 5+ years

Thanks to Nathalie Wargo at High Point Library for tweeting the photo – King County Elections‘ permanent ballot dropbox has arrived! Earlier this year, the county committed to restoring dropboxes in areas including West Seattle, where the last one was removed more than five years ago. For the past few years, ballot vans had been brought here for a few days before each voting deadline, but otherwise, using postal mail was required, which required stamps; county dropboxes don’t. So when your ballot arrives for the August primary, you’ll be able to drop it off at High Point Library (35th and Raymond) if you don’t want to use the U.S. Mail.

    Isn’t there a drop box in Delridge near the library?  Or was it removed?

      That’s what was removed years ago. It’s actually been more than six years now, mentioned here – it was last seen at the former Delridge Neighborhood Service Center (also removed) in November 2009.

    Great use of tax payer money, aren’t they called mail in for a reason?

Sorry, comment time is over.
