notes that there are drop boxes in Northeast Seattle and Northwest Seattle, but none in Southeast Seattle or West Seattle.)
You may also vote in person at one of the accessible voting centers, which are open to all voters. This is what you need to do if you’ve lost or damaged your ballot. The nearest voting center is at Union Station, 401 South Jackson St.
