It’s Election Day, and no stamp is no problem

Drop your ballot in any mailbox, but it must be postmarked today. There also are special ballot boxes.

Tuesday is Election Day and if you want to get your ballot in, don’t worry about finding a stamp because it is not needed.

This year, in the primary and general elections, ballots may be returned by mail without postage. Counties are getting money from the state to cover the cost.

Be aware of collection times on mail boxes. A ballot returned by mail must be postmarked no later than Aug. 7. Those arriving with a later postmark will not be counted.

Ballots also may be placed in a designated drop box without postage until 8 p.m. Tuesday.

And voters may drop off completed ballots at the county Auditor’s Office from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday. The office is located at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett.
