Last weekend to fill out your ballot prior to Nov. 3 general election

Voters have until Tuesday, Nov. 3 to return their general election ballots, and it’s recommended you drop them into a drop box rather than the U.S. Mail to avoid possible delays. (If you do use the U.S. Mail, ballots must be postmarked no later than Nov. 3.)

Here’s a list of South Snohomish County drop boxes, which are open until 8 p.m. Nov. 3:

Ballots were mailed in mid-October, but if you didn’t receive yours, you can download an online ballot at

With the ballot status tool in VoteWA, you can track your ballot from the time it’s mailed to you to the time it’s received and accepted for counting.

If your ballot tracking status is “challenged,” Snohomish County Elections will contact you by mail to inform you of the specific issue and how to resolve it. Voters are advised to respond quickly to correct the situation so your ballot can be counted.

Signature challenges happen when a voter returns their ballot without signing the ballot return envelope or when the signature on the ballot return envelope does not match the signature on file. If your signature is challenged, you will receive a letter from Snohomish County Elections.

To fix any signature challenge issues, follow the instructions on the form you receive and return the form to Snohomish County Elections. All signature challenge forms must be received by 5 pm the day before the election is certified (see important dates). Return your completed form in the envelope provided or drop it off in person to ensure your form is received before the deadline.

  1. Late voters should be careful where they deposit their ballots. The official drop box is always preferred, and we know they will be open and accessible up until 8:00 PM Tuesday evening.

    If you have to use the Postal Service, know that there are no mail collections on Sunday anywhere, even at Post Offices. Mail deposited in a blue box on Monday should get a Monday postmark and be accepted by election officials when it arrives later in the week. Mail deposited on Tuesday should get a Tuesday postmark~ if and only if it’s deposited early in the day, before the last collection at that box. Many blue postal boxes have their last collection in the early afternoon, so be careful.

    For depositing your ballot on Tuesday Election Day, the official ballot drop box is always the preferred choice.
