Today is election day – don’t forget to vote!

Posted on August 16th, 2011 by Laura Fonda

Today is the primary and special election. Remember to have your ballots stamped and postmarked by today, or dropped in a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. tonight.

The two closest local ballot drop box location are the King County Administration Building, located downtown at 500 4th Avenue, and the Ballard Branch Library at 57th Street and 22nd Avenue NW. See this map for a complete list of King County drop box locations.

How’s the election going so far? From our news partners at The Seattle Times:

Despite Seattle’s hotly debated tunnel referendum and candidate races around King County, returned primary ballots are coming in more slowly than elections officials anticipated. They earlier had projected countywide turnout of 52 percent.

As of Monday night, the county had received about 211,000 of the 1.1 million ballots sent out, or 19 percent.
