Call goes out to send in election ballots

EVERETT — Snohomish County is stepping up its effort to get voters to return their ballots in time to count in Tuesday’s primary.

Starting today, from 2 to 8 p.m., voters can drop off completed ballots at a designated collection center or at Sno-Isle branch libraries.

Touch-screen machines also will be in place at the libraries for disabled voters and those who prefer to make their choices electronically rather than on a mail-in ballot.

Election workers will be on hand to gather them from 2 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday. No ballots will be collected Sunday.

On Election Day, workers will be at the locations from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Voters also can hand in ballots or use machines at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office.

Ballots must be turned in or postmarked by Aug. 21 to be counted.

County Auditor Carolyn Diepenbrock said Wednesday that of the nearly 340,000 ballots sent out, 41,470 have been returned.

She said that’s “right on target” for attaining the 38 percent turnout she predicted for this first-ever August primary.
