King County Elections mailed ballots Wednesday to about 750,000 registered voters for the Feb. 13 special election. The department estimates a 34.4 percent voter turnout rate.
This special election consists of propositions from 18 jurisdictions, including 16 school districts. The Kent School District has two levies on the ballot.
“There are important local issues on the ballot for more than half of King County voters this February,” said Julie Wise, director of King County Elections, in a county news release. “These issues impact our daily lives, so be sure to vote and make your voice heard.”
Ballots can be returned without a stamp to any of the 55 ballot drop boxes by 8 p.m. on Election Day. Or voters can return their ballot through the Postal Service with one first class stamp. Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by Feb. 13.
Voters who don’t receive a ballot by Jan. 29 or who have questions should call King County Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
