With four weeks remaining before the 2020 general election slated for Tuesday, Nov. 3, ballots are going out to voters in Clallam County starting Wednesday, Oct. 14, according to the Clallam County Elections office.
Those needing to register, update an address or check on the status of a ballot are encouraged to log onto their Online Voter Registration Portal at www.votewa.gov or go to www.clallam.net/elections.
Those who are unable to independently vote their paper ballot may use an Accessible Voting Unit with large print, color contrast and audio ballots, elections office officials say; this unit is available in the Clallam County Auditor’s Office — located at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles — during normal business hours.
Ballots must be postmarked or placed in a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day (Nov. 3) to be counted. U.S. Postal Service representatives are encouraging voters return their ballot a week before Election Day. Those returning their ballots less than a week before Election Day are encouraged to use an official ballot drop box.
There are nine ballot drop boxes throughout the county. Those boxes will be opened by elections department staff on Oct. 14 and available 24 hours a day, every day through Nov. 3.
Sequim ballot drop boxes include the JCPenney parking lot at 651 W. Washington St. and a box a, the Carlsborg box near Sunny Farms Country Store, 261416 U.S Highway 101. Find other locations at www.votewa.gov.
