What is the deadline for turning in my ballot?
  • All WA State Elections end promptly at 8:00pm on Election Day.
  • Ballot Drop boxes – Drop boxes close promptly at 8:00 pm on Election Day
  • Postal Mail – Ballots must be postmarked no later than Election Day.  Voters are encouraged to vote early.  The USPS recommends voters return their ballots via mail a week before Election Day.  Voters mailing within less than a week of Election Day should note mailbox collection times, or use an official ballot drop box.
  • If mailing on Election Day, take your ballot inside, have the date hand stamped by the postal employee.  Ballots placed in USPS boxes after the last pick up of the day will be postmarked the next day and will be late.
