Cast ballots in person Monday and Tuesday on accessible units

By Evan Smith

In-person voting for the Tuesday general election is available Monday and Tuesday on accessible units at the Lynnwood Library, at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office in Everett and at Smokey Point near Arlington.

The accessible voting unit at the Lynnwood Library, 19200 44th Ave. W, is available Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Tuesday, Election Day, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The unit at the county auditor’s office is open Friday and Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Election Day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The auditor’s office is on the first floor of the Administration West Building on the county courthouse campus at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.

A third unit at the Medallion Hotel, 16710 Smokey Point Blvd, Arlington, is available Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Election Day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Such machines are designed for disabled people to vote independently, but anyone can use them.

The units are touch-screen voting devices that feature large-font, audio and tactile options to assist voters in casting their choices.

A voter who wants to cast a ballot on an accessible unit will be asked to show a photo ID or sign a declaration. When a voter signs a declaration, election workers are required to match the signature on the declaration to the signature on file in the voter registration system.

Voters also may return completed ballots at a 24-hour ballot drop box at any time until 8 p.m. Election Day.

The drop boxes are near the Edmonds Library, 650 Main St, Edmonds; in front of the Lynnwood City Hall, 19100 44th Ave., Lynnwood; at the Bothell QFC parking lot, 22833 Bothell-Everett highway, Bothell; at McCollum Park, 600 128th St. S.E., Everett; at the Courthouse Campus in Everett; and at sites in Arlington, Lake Stevens, Marysville, Monroe, Mukilteo, Snohomish and Stanwood.

Ballot drop vans will accept ballots Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. in the Mountlake Terrace Library parking lot, 23300 58th Ave. W., Mountlake Terrace, and in the Everett Mall parking lot, 1402 S.E. Everett Mall Way, Everett.

Voters also may drop completed ballots at the county auditor’s Office Friday and Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Mailed ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, Nov. 8. At local postal locations that means a deadline between 4:15 and 5:45 p.m.
