King County Elections office relocates to Renton
June 21, 2011
King County Elections moved 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.
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 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.
