With the General Election just one week away, voters are reminded to vote and return their ballot by Tuesday, November 5. If you haven’t received your ballot, please contact the Auditor’s Office at (360) 778-5102.
Ballots can be returned in an official ballot drop box until 8:00 pm on Election Day. Drop box locations are listed on the insert enclosed with the ballot, in the Local Voters’ Pamphlet, or on the Auditor’s website at www.whatcomcounty.us/auditor.
If returning your ballot by mail, a stamp is not required, County Auditor Debbie Adelstein said. Ballots still need to be postmarked no later than November 5, however. Voters are encouraged to check the last collection time posted on the mailbox if waiting until Election Day to mail their ballot. Ballots deposited after the last collection time on Election Day will not have a valid postmark and can’t be counted.
