Options for returning ballots
Mailed ballots need a first-class stamp. Voters also have several locations to return ballots without a stamp by 8 p.m. on August 2, including 29 drop-box locations and the Bellevue, Renton and Seattle Accessible Voting Centers. Ballots can be returned any time after they are received – the earlier the better.
