Elections

The United States Postal Service mailed to every U.S. residence a mailer about voting by mail. Washington residents do not need to request that a ballot be mailed to them. All residents receive one by mail. We do, however, recommend you visit VoteWA.gov to make sure we have your correct address. Ballots will be mailed by October 16, which is 18 days before Election Day.

For any other elections services, please use the Online Questions and Service Requests We'll respond quickly to make sure you're ready to vote in the November General Election. If you need to call us we can be reached during regular business hours at 360-337-7128.
