Officials in the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office Election Division say ballots for the November 3rd General Election will be mailed Wednesday, October 14th.
Voters can return their completed ballots by mail or by taking to a drop box.
Voters who have not received a ballot by October 21st should contact the Auditor’s office to get a replacement.
Mailed-in ballots will not require postage this election. Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, November 3rd.
Ballots left at a drop box also do not require postage.
To be eligible to vote in the November 3rd General Election, the Auditor’s Office needs voter registration requests or address changes in the office by October 26th. These tasks can be completed online at VoteWA.gov or by mail.
Citizens that miss the October 26th deadline can still register to vote or change their address but will need to appear in person at the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office, 311 Grand Ave., Suite 103, Bellingham, by 8pm on November 3rd. Anyone completing or updating their registration in person will be required to wear a mask, maintain the 6-foot social distancing standard and expect long lines election week.
