Nov. 8 general election ballots in the mail

Snohomish County Elections on Thursday mailed ballots for the Nov. 8 general election to 500,000 registered voters. Ballots were previously mailed to military and overseas voters and to out-of-state and rural voters. All eligible voters should receive their ballot no later than Wednesday, Oct. 26. A combined state and local voters’ pamphlet was mailed earlier this month to every household.

The Nov. 8 general election includes races for U.S. congressional offices, the Washington State Secretary of State, state legislative offices, judicial positions and local offices like Prosecuting Attorney and PUD Commissioner. There are several state and local ballot measures for voters to consider as well.

Ahead of this year’s midterm elections, the auditor’s office launched several new social media accounts to keep residents connected to accurate and trustworthy information about elections.

“With the vast amount of information circulating from competing sources, it can be a challenge for voters and residents to determine what is true when it comes to elections,” said County Auditor Garth Fell. “By checking out our website and following the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts, you can be confident you are getting accurate, reliable information and how you can successfully participate in this election.”

Voters can register or update an existing registration online or by mail through Monday, Oct. 31. Voters can register or make updates and vote in-person until 8 p.m. on Election Night, Tuesday, Nov. 8 at the auditor’s office in Everett or at an accessible voting site during specific hours.

Thirty-five ballot drop boxes are open to receive voted ballots. Drop box locations can be found on the inserts that come with your ballot or in your voters’ pamphlet. Visit for a complete list of drop boxes.

Additionally, voters can return their ballots by mail through the U.S. Postal Service. Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 8.  Check the last collection time on the USPS postal box and when in doubt, use a county ballot drop box.
