Registered voters are reminded that Tuesday, November 7th is Election Day. County Auditor Debbie Adelstein encourages voters who haven’t already returned their ballot to use one of the 18 official ballot drop boxes located throughout the county. Drop box locations are listed in the Local Voters’ Pamphlet, on the insert enclosed with the ballot, or on the Auditor’s website at www.whatcomcounty.us/auditor. Ballots deposited in a drop box don’t need postage and are open until 8:00 pm on Election Day.
If returning your ballot through the mail, a 49-cent stamp is required and the ballot must have a postmark no later than November 7 to be counted.
