The Elections Office is partnering with the Secretary of State to offer an enhanced web site where voters can view their online voters’ guide, print a replacement ballot, and learn when the Elections Office has received their ballot. The website address is: myvote.wa.gov
. Other services offered on the site include the ability to update the voter's residence address, within the State, or mailing address, anywhere in the world; and to view one’s voting history.
Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by August 7, Election Day. First class postage is required. Alternatively, voters may deposit their ballots at a ballot drop box located at the San Juan County Courthouse, Orcas Island Senior Center and the Lopez Fire Station. Voters may also drop ballots off at the Elections Office in Friday Harbor by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
