Story

King County Elections (KCE) mailed ballots to over 1,150,000 registered voters across the county for the February 8, 2022 Special election. KCE projects a 32% turnout countywide in this election, expecting to receive approximately 380,000 ballots back from voters.

Ballots should arrive to voters’ mailboxes by Monday, January 24. If a voter believes they should have received a ballot but did not, they should call King County Elections at 206-296-VOTE (8683).

Voters in participating jurisdictions will be weighing in on a short list of ballot measures, including school bonds and levies, fire district propositions, and a bond measure for the City of Shoreline.  Voters will receive an insert in their ballot packet that includes the statements for and against each measure, as well as instructions on how to return their ballot or receive assistance. Voters can also check our online ballot tracker to track their ballot's progress to them and through the process once returned. 

The deadline to register to vote online or by mail for this election is Monday, January 31. Voters may register or update their registration in person until 8 p.m. on Election Day. KCE will provide in person service, including providing replacement ballots and assistive voting devices for those with disabilities, at KCE Headquarters in Renton.

Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, February 8, or deposited into one of KCE’s 74 secure ballot drop boxes by 8 p.m. sharp on Election Day.
