Ballot drop boxes are available 24 hours a day until 8:00pm election night

If you’re one of the five candidates running for the open seat on the Everett City Council you may either like your odds with so few ballots returned or may be worried about losing by just a few votes. As of Friday morning only 6674 of the 48,820 ballots mailed out for the race had been returned. The top two vote-getters in Tuesday’s primary will advance to the general election. You can click here to see the latest return percentages for most races in Snohomish County. This is an all mail election and ballots must be postmarked by August 7th in order to be counted. If you prefer not to mail your ballot you can drop your ballot off in one of the drop boxes placed around Snohomish County or bring it to the auditor’s office at the Snohomish County Administration building in downtown Everett. If you really want to vote by machine, there are two voting machines at the auditor’s office for use by those who are visually impaired or do not wish to fill out a paper ballot.
