[ARCHIVED] Make Sure Your Ballot Gets Postmarked by February 9

Election Day is Tuesday, February 9th and all Whatcom County School Districts and Fire Protection District 8 are on the ballot. Make sure your ballot is postmarked by February 9th so it gets counted. We recommend mailing a day earlier to ensure a valid postmark, County Auditor Debbie Adelstein said.

To save a 49-cent stamp, voters are encouraged to deposit their ballot in an official drop box. Ballots deposited in a drop box don’t need postage and are open until 8:00 pm on Election Day. Voters are reminded that six new ballot drop boxes were added throughout the county in the Fall. The new locations are:

• Haggen Sehome Village , 210 36th Street (in the northeast corner of the parking lot)
• North Whatcom Fire & Rescue Station, 4581 Birch Bay-Lynden Road
• North Fork Library, 7506 Kendall Road
• Laurel Grange, 6172 Guide Meridian (no longer a drop box at Meridian Middle School)
• Sudden Valley, Gate One at the Security Office turnaround
• Behind the Sumas Post Office, 534 Railroad Avenue

The usual drop boxes are still open and voters can find the locations online at or in the Voters’ Pamphlet enclosed with their ballot.

Contact the Election Division at the Auditor’s Office immediately at (360) 778-5102, if you haven’t received your ballot. Relay calls gladly accepted.
