Last Day to Vote

Your Washington State primary ballots are due TODAY, August 6th by 8pm. If your ballot has been sitting on the table for a while, now is the time to go fill it in! There are important city and county-level races happening right now that you can have an impact on.

Although postage is free on your ballot, ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday, August 6, to be counted. Just to ensure your ballot will not be disqualified due to a late postmark, we recommend taking your ballot to a drop box at this point. You can find a list of drop boxes at https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/elections/how-to-vote/ballots/returning-my-ballot/ballot-drop-boxes.aspx

If you need help deciding who to vote for, we highly recommend the Fuse Progressive Voters Guide, which not only makes its own endorsements but aggregates other endorsements from newspapers, unions, NGO's and more:

Here are instructions for if you've lost or damaged your ballot. You can still vote! https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/elections/how-to-vote/ballots/replacing-a-ballot-or-envelope.aspx

Additionally, because of a new state law, we now have same day registration. If you still haven't registered to vote, you can go to one of the following staffed vote centers:

These vote centers are staffed with employees trained to help people who need ballot assistance due to disabilities cast a ballot. See this article in Crosscut for a more in depth look at the services available: https://crosscut.com/2019/08/last-minute-registration-voting-disability-and-more-you-need-know-tuesdays-election

If you have already returned your ballot, your suggested action for today is to remind your friends and family to get theirs in.
