A King County elections worker just confirmed that all is not lost if you've lost your ballot. Or if you're stuck at work but you left your ballot at home and won't have time to go back home and fill it out and drop it off before 8 pm. "You can come into any of our accessible voting centers, or you can download a replacement ballot online," she said.
If you print a ballot at home, print a replacement envelope, too.
In 2009, I'd lost my ballot and went to Union Station to vote and practically had the place to myself. There were a dozen election workers there, and there was no line. According to the county employee I talked to, it's even easier now, because they've updated the voting technology to a simple-to-use tablet.
She also added, "This year we partnered with other locations just to give people more options" to vote in person, mentioning Washington Talking Book & Braille Library as one example. But that accessible voting center is not open today.
Election day, these are the only accessible voting centers that are open for King County voters:
401 S. Jackson Street
Seattle, WA 98104
King County Elections
919 SW Grady Way
Renton, WA 98057
Bellevue City Hall
450 110th Avenue NE
Bellevue, WA 98004
Each are open until 8 pm, but they'll be far less crowded at lunch than after 5 pm. Don't forget to take this with you.
