More than 47,000 registered voters in the Sequim, Port Angeles and Quillayute Valley school districts soon will receive ballots for the 2017 February Special Election.
The election will be nearly countywide, with school levies on the ballots of voters residing in the aforementioned three school districts. Only registered voters in those districts will receive a ballot.
Ballots will be mailed on Wednesday, Jan. 25. Election Day is Tuesday, Feb. 14.
Voters who have moved within the county or will be away from their residence when ballots are mailed may request a replacement ballot be sent to an alternate address by contacting Clallam County Elections at 417-2221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Voters who regularly travel to another location, such as snowbirds, are encouraged to submit a seasonal address application.
