VOTED YET? Deadline Tuesday night

(WSB photo – High Point ballot dropbox, around 6 pm tonight)

If you haven’t voted yet – you have 24 1/2 hours left. Tomorrow is Election Day, aka “voting deadline day” – you have to get your ballot to a dropbox by 8 pm Tuesday, or if you’re mailing it, be sure it’ll be postmarked Tuesday (or today). More than 80 percent of Seattle voters’ ballots had NOT been turned in as of midday today, according to the county Elections Department. So here’s what you need to know:

    Never received my ballot in the mail. Is it too late to get one somewhere?  Where would that be?

    I voted!  Thanks for the reminder WSB :)

    Please vote everyone regardless of political stance, only 3/4 of America votes.

    Voting by mail should be convenient.  But if you have mobility issues, live in a neighborhood with no mailboxes, and carriers will not pick up outgoing mail, it becomes a problem.  More drop boxes would be helpful, or better yet – a mobile drop box/van.

    I heard on TV news that drop-boxes this year have been increased to 50, whereas last year only 10; if that is correct, that is awesome; really hope it increases voter turnout

    thanks; I count 55 drop-boxes and 21 drop-boxes in Seattle; that’s excellent;

    The Ballot Box at the Library is a total disaster. Cars parked illegally all over the place. There really should be someone monitoring that situation. It’s a complete mess. I miss the drive-through box at the stadium.

      I completely agree with you.  How was this location chosen to support all the traffic associated with a drop-box?  The road is narrow, there is very little parking and there isn’t even a person collecting drive-by ballots as they did at the stadium.  Glad I took my ballot early because it’s about to get really crazy over there.

    The box was just fine earlier today. Perhaps you ought give not waiting until the last minute a try. And this location was not chosen to be a “convenient drive through,” it was chosen because it was accessible to a historically-disenfranchised community.

Sorry, comment time is over.
