Ballots to arrive next week for General Election
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.
