Issaquah City Hall drop box opens for special election

King County Elections has rolled out ballot drop boxes before the upcoming special election, including a drop box at Issaquah City Hall.
The box at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way, opened April 7 and is due to remain open 24 hours a day until 8 p.m. April 26, Election Day.
The election does not include Issaquah or Issaquah School District voters, but residents in the nearby Snoqualmie Valley School District face a ballot measure.
The boxes — set up at locations across King County — allow voters to return ballots in person rather than by mail.
The elections office relied on historical use, population densities, planned future growth, proximity to transit services, access and safety data to determine the locations.
The elections office said voters used the drop boxes during the August primary and November general elections last year, as well as a February special election.
