Still want to vote in the primary? You have until Tuesday

State law allows registering and voting on same day. There are three places in the county to do so.

EVERETT — Voting in this year’s primary election ends 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Ballots returned by mail do not require a stamp but must be postmarked no later than Aug. 4 to count. They also can be placed in one of the county’s 30 designated drop boxes which will be open around the clock until 8 p.m. on Election Day.

An estimated 40% of the county’s 488,000 registered voters are expected to participate. As of Thursday evening, 15.7% of ballots had been returned, according to the county elections office.

It is not too late to participate. State law allows a person to register to vote, get a ballot and cast it the same day. There are three locations where this can be done in person from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday and 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.

They are the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office, 3000 Rockefeller Ave., in Everett; the Wyndham Garden Hotel, 16710 Smokey Point Blvd. in Arlington; and the Alderwood Water & Wastewater District office, 3626 156th St SW, in Lynnwood.

All voters who show up at one of those sites will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.

For more information, contact the election office at 425-388-3444.
