Voting underway in 2021 primary election

Voting in Clallam County’s 2021 primary election is underway with more than 54,000 ballots mailed to eligible registered county voters, election officials said last week.

Election Day is Tuesday, Aug. 3.

Those not registered to vote in Washington have until July 26 to register online or by mail or until 8 p.m. on Aug. 3 to register in person at the Auditor’s Office, to participate in the primary.

Registered voters may access their registration details and other voter information online at votewa.gov.

Voters needing a replacement ballot may also access a printable ballot via the secure website, or obtain one by contacting Clallam County Elections at 360-417-2221 or elections@co.clallam.wa.us.

Ballots must be postmarked or returned to a drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Sequim ballot drop off options include 24-hour ballot boxes at 651 W. Washington St. and 261461 U.S. Highway 101 (in Carlsborg, near Sunny Farms).

Port Angeles has three drop boxes at the Clallam County Courthhouse at 223 E. Fourth St.: in the circular drive, directly across from parking for disabled persons, and inside the auditor’s office.

The auditor’s office also has an accessible voting unit to assist voters with disabilities in voting independently. Regular business hours are 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday, with extended Election Day hours of 9:30 a.m.-8 p.m.

Printed voter pamphlets featuring local candidate races were mailed to Clallam County residences participating in the primary earlier this month. An online voter guide is also available on the Clallam County Elections website at clallam.net/elections.
