Time to complete and turn in Primary Election ballots

WHATCOM COUNTY, Wash. — The Whatcom County Auditor’s Office mailed out Primary Election ballots on July 14th. Those ballots need to be completed and returned via the following by the listed deadlines.

• Drop in a ballot drop-box by 8pm on August 3rd
• Send via postal mail in time to receive a postmark of August 3rd or earlier (no postage required)

Resolutions and candidates appearing on each ballot will be unique to the voter’s address since the resolutions and many of the offices are restricted to only the voters within districts (e.g. council, fire protection) within the County.

Candidate races include only those eligible to appear on the November General Election and have 3 or more candidates. Only the 2 candidates in each race receiving the most votes in the Primary Election will appear on the General Election ballot.
