Ballots should start to appear in Issaquah School District voters’ mailboxes in the days ahead.

The electorate faces a choice on a $219 million school construction bond in the April 17 election. (The school district stretches from Preston to Newcastle, and from Sammamish to Renton.)

Issaquah School District officials opted not to pay to include a voters’ pamphlet alongside ballots.

“Vote and return your ballot as soon as possible,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a statement. “The earlier voters return their ballots to the elections department, the better. We check every voter’s signature before opening the ballots and have a limited amount of time to contact voters if there are any issues to correct.”

Voters can return completed ballots at a drop box or through the mail. Mailed ballots require a 45-cent first-class stamp.

The elections office plans to open a ballot drop box at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way, on Thursday. The ballot drop box in Issaquah and other locations countywide remain open until 8 p.m. April 17.

King County Elections is also opening the accessible voting center Friday.
