EVERETT — Still hanging onto a ballot? Here’s what Snohomish County voters need to know to take part in Tuesday’s primary.
Ballots can be placed in any of the county’s 35 designated drop boxes. That’s the best option.
They can be returned by mail without a stamp. However, before dropping it in a mail box, check the time for the last pick-up. Ballot-return envelopes must be postmarked no later than Aug. 2.
Not registered? No problem. Under Washington’s same-day registration law, a person can go into the Snohomish County Auditor’s office until 8 p.m. on Election Day to register and vote.
Also, one can do so at either of the satellite voting sites the county is operating. They are at the Alderwood Water and Wastewater District, 3626 156th St. SW in Lynnwood, and the Wyndham Garden Hotel, 16710 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington. These will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.
In addition, accessible voting equipment for voters with disabilities will be available at the county auditor’s office, 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.
You don’t need a traditional address to vote. You can register using a shelter, park, motorhome, marina or other identifiable location you consider your residence. This location will be used to determine which precinct you will vote in.
