King County Elections office relocates June 20
June 14, 2011
NEW — 2 p.m. June 14, 2011
King County Elections is moving.
The office moves from Tukwila to 919 Southwest Grady Way, Renton, on June 20. The location is the election office’s mailing address and physical address, as well as the location for the public to visit for assistance or to observe elections in progress.
“As we prepare for the August primary, it’s great to be back in our home facility with space that fully accommodates our state-of-the-art equipment and technology,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a news release. “It also offers convenience for the public to visit and observe the election process. We hope to have lots of visitors stop in for a tour during our upcoming elections!”
The building features a viewing loop around the ballot-processing area. The public can take a self-guided tour during elections to observe the process in action.
Weekdays from Aug. 1-19, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., should be the best time to observe. On Election Day, Aug. 16, the office is open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
King County Elections is returning to the same facility used until 2009, after the risk of flooding from the Howard Hanson Dam resulted in a temporary move to Tukwila.
