It’s primary election day, and that means it’s time to get your ballots to a mailbox or drop box today if you want your vote to be counted. Some races will be decided at this primary, and there are also some levies on the ballot, including a library levy.
As long as your ballot is postmarked today, it should be counted. However, if you want to save a stamp, there are a few ballot drop boxes available — unfortunately, none in Southeast Seattle. One is at the King County Administration Building downtown, 500 4th Avenue. Even closer, however, is the Accessible Voting Center at Union Station, 401 South Jackson, which will be open until 8 p.m. There is a ballot drop box there, and you can also vote there in person if you have lost your mail-in ballot or need to use an accessible voting unit. To vote in person at Union Station, you must either show a photo ID or sign a declaration.
