King County Elections (KCE) mailed ballots today to over 76,000 registered voters in Seattle City Council District 3 for the December 7 recall election. Voters will begin to receive their ballots over the coming days and should have them in their mailbox by the Monday, November 22 mail delivery. If they have not received their ballot by Monday and believe they should have, voters should give KCE a call at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
Only voters registered in Seattle City Council District 3 are eligible to vote in this election. They will be weighing in on the question of whether to recall City Councilmember Kshama Sawant. The allegations levied by recall proponents, and Sawant’s response to them, will be on the ballot itself and voters will mark RECALL YES or RECALL NO.
The deadline to register to vote online is November 29. Voters can register and vote through 8 p.m. on Election Day at any of KCE’s Vote Center locations. In addition to Elections HQ in Renton (open now), KCE will open a Vote Center at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center on December 4, 6, and 7 to provide in person services to those who need to register to vote, update their registration, receive a replacement ballot, or use an assistive voting device.
Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, December 7, or returned to one of the 16 drop boxes locations open for this election. Drop boxes are open 24-hours, seven days a week until 8 p.m. sharp on Election Day.
