Washington

Step 1: Apply

I have a question that wasn't answered here.


Please call the county election office where you live. They are in charge of elections and should be able to help you. https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/auditors/




Can I vote-by-mail in my state?


Yes, Washington holds an all-mail election. Click here to register as a new voter or to check your existing registration. (It's always a good idea to double-check.) https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx New voters must register by October 26, 2020





Step 2: Vote-by-Mail

When do I have to mail or drop off my completed ballot?


Technically, ballots must be postmarked by Election Day (November 3, 2020) and received by November 8, 2020. To avoid delays within the election office and the postal service, we recommend you return your voted ballot as soon as it arrives and no later than the middle of October. You may also drop your ballot at your local election office. It's a good idea to call and check first. https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/auditors/#




Does it require a stamp? Two?


Read the outside of the envelope to see if additional postage may be required. The US Postal service will deliver any ballot, regardless of whether or not it has the correct postage, or any at all. They will charge the local election office for any unpaid postage. https://time.com/4547550/absentee-mail-ballot-postage-stamp-postal-service-usps/




Can my ballot be dropped off at a polling site or dedicated drop box?


Drop boxes will be located around the state. Here's a list of locations: https://www.sos.wa.gov/_assets/elections/ballot%20drop%20boxes%202019%20general%20election.pdf Or you can find the nearest location to you using this online tool: https://voter.votewa.gov/WhereToVote.aspx




Is there any way to check if my ballot was received?

Early In-Person Voting

Does my state offer any in-person early voting days?


October 16 - November 2, 2020




Link to information and locations:


Each county opens a voting center prior to each primary, special election, and general election. Each voting center is open during business hours during the voting period. You can locate your nearest voting center by logging into VoteWA.gov or contacting your county's elections department.
