Special Election ballots go out Wednesday to Kent, Auburn voters
King County Elections will mail ballots Wednesday, Jan. 22, for the Feb. 11 Special Election. Voters in 18 jurisdictions, including the Kent and Auburn school districts, will receive ballots.
Kent and Auburn schools are each seeking approval of levies.
Voters should return ballots as early as possible, but not later than election day, Feb. 11. Voters returning ballots by mail need to affix first class postage. Note that postage rates will increase to 49 cents on Jan. 26. Ballots must be postmarked by Feb. 11.
Voters can use any of eight drop boxes 24 hours/day starting Jan. 23 until 8 p.m. on election day.
Voters who do not receive a ballot by Jan. 30 or who have questions should call the King County Elections voter information line at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
Not all voters will receive voters’ pamphlets.
Voters’ pamphlets are distributed in ballot packets to voters in districts that requested to print a pamphlet. In special elections, jurisdictions must choose whether or not to participate and pay for a voters’ pamphlet.
Five jurisdictions (Enumclaw, Issaquah, Shoreline, Snoqualmie Valley and Kent school districts) chose not to participate in a voters’ pamphlet.
All voters will receive information in their ballot packets about how and where to return ballots. This information, details about measures on ballots, and much more is always available at www.kingcounty.gov/elections.
