Voting in Washington’s 2017 General Election is now underway as ballots were mailed last week to all registered Clallam County voters.
New Washington state voters have until Monday, Oct. 30, to register in person at the Auditor’s Office in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles, to participate in this election.
Those needing a replacement ballot may securely access a printable ballot via the MyVote website at www.myvote.wa.gov, or get one by contacting Clallam County Elections directly at 360-417- 2221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 7, or returned to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. that day.
Ballot drop off options include 24-hour drive-up ballot boxes at the Sequim Village Shopping Center near JCPenney’s, the Clallam County Courthouse in Port Angeles and a walk-up drop box at Forks City Hall.
An accessible voting unit is also available at the Auditor’s Office to assist voters with disabilities in voting independently. Regular business hours are 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, with extended Election Day hours of 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
