FINAL HOUR TO VOTE! Get to the dropbox by 8 pm

We found Patti, Liz, and their canine companions at the White Center Library ballot dropbox late this afternoon. Also there, volunteers from the White Center Community Development Association, cheering for everyone who brought in their ballot. That dropbox at 1409 SW 107th might be closer to you if you’re in south West Seattle; otherwise, the only dropbox in WS is at the High Point Library, 3411 SW Raymond – and note that with the 8 pm deadline approaching, it’s likely to be busy (things were picking up when we passed by around dusk), so don’t rush out of the house at 7:55 pm and think you’ll beat the deadline. Your alternative to the dropboxes is the U.S. Mail, but make sure it’ll be postmarked tonight – look for pickup times on the mailbox, or walk it into a Post Office lobby (Westwood or The Junction). Lost your ballot and/or envelope? You can print out a replacement. Looking for last-minute candidate info? Links are in the reminder we published last night. First results are due by about 8:15 pm – we’ll have an update here on WSB.

    How many voting updates will there be tonight?

    • WSB November 7, 2017 (7:46 pm)

      Only one has been announced, so far, as is usual (8:15-ish)

    Is the junction post office open until 8 please? Some of us were very disorganized and left our ballot at home this morning and are now racing to beat the clock. Not me, but you know some of us… :-(

    Left my ballot on my mailbox last night and it wasn’t picked up, a neighbor just came over and said the same thing. That’s three that I know of. We’re on 48th Ave SW between SW Edmonds and SW Hudson.  Still hanging there.

    Wow- — looks like some ballots won’t be counted – sad at a time when every vote counts.

      The voting deadline is not secret, and everyone has had ample time to fill in and return their ballots. Also, anyone in line at a drop box at 8:00 is allowed to turn in their ballot.

Sorry, comment time is over.
