Ballot drop box comes to City Hall

October 12, 2010

By Staff

King County Elections has rolled out 11 ballot drop boxes before the November election, including a drop box at Issaquah City Hall.

The box at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way, is due to open Oct. 14 and remain open 24 hours a day until 8 p.m. Nov. 2, Election Day.

The elections office plans to mail ballots to voters the week of Oct. 13.

The boxes provide voters with the option of returning ballots in person rather than by mail. Find a complete list of drop boxes in the voter pamphlet or here.

The elections office relied on historical use, population densities, planned future growth, proximity to transit services, access and safety data to determine the locations.

“Voters have told us that drop boxes are an essential part of elections,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a news release. “While it’s important to watch the costs of government, voting is a basic right and we want to make sure it remains accessible and convenient.”
