Ballots for the November General Election will begin to arrive in mail boxes by Oct. 19, Kitsap County Auditor Walt Washington said Thursday.
Voters who do not receive a ballot by Oct. 25 should contact the auditor’s office for a replacement, he said.
Washington also noted that this election’s ballots have been printed on larger card stock than the standard ballot, and additional postage is needed to return a ballot by mail. Voters should use two first-class postage stamps, he said.
In the last presidential election, Kitsap County had a record turnout with nearly 126,000 residents casting ballots. County officials said more than 17,000 of those ballots were either damaged or unsigned requiring additional review by election staff.
