Whidbey voters have until Tuesday to cast ballots

The Nov. 8 general election is Tuesday, and Whidbey voters have until 8 p.m. that evening to cast their votes.

Washington is a vote-by-mail state but ballots can be returned to drop-off boxes positioned around Island County. Two are located on the South End, one at Trinity Lutheran Church on 18341 Highway 525 in Freeland and another at Ken’s Korner on 4141 Highway 525 in Clinton. Drop boxes are also located in Coupeville, Oak Harbor and on Camano Island.

All boxes will close promptly at 8 p.m. on election night. Also, mailed ballots must be postmarked no later than election day for them to be counted.

Check the Island County Election’s website, www.islandcountywa.gov/Auditor/Elections, for details.

So far, counties across the state are showing healthy ballot returns.

“Counties are reporting that 1,512,019 ballots are now in, with five days left to go,” the Office of Secretary of State reported Thursday evening. “That’s 35.4 percent of the record 4.27 million ballots issued.”

Island County has reported one of the highest returns thus far with 48 percent of voters already submitting their votes. Jefferson County has the most with 52 percent of ballots returned.
