Tuesday, Nov. 6 is Election Day. Where in Bellevue can you drop your ballot?
King County votes through mail-in ballots, but your vote doesn't count if it's still sitting on your coffee table at 8 p.m. Nov. 6. There are numerous ways in Bellevue to make sure that your vote counts.
You can mail your ballot to the county through the U.S. Postal Service from your closest mailbox. Make sure that you have placed a first-class stamp on it, and that you have placed your ballot inside the security envelope as well as the return envelope.
Drop it off
You can drop off your ballots at the Crossroads Bellevue shopping center, 15600 NE 8th Street, at the south entrance of the mall, and at Bellevue City Hall, where you can hand your ballot to one of the county election workers, who are at city hall to operate one of the county's accessible voting centers. You should make sure that you've placed your ballot inside the security envelope as well as the return envelope.
Vote in person
King County conducts its elections by mail, so registered voters should have received a ballot to fill out at home. However, if you need assistance voting, the accessible voting center at Bellevue City Hall is open through Election Day.
These locations are open to all voters, but are primarily for voters with disabilities who have trouble filling out the ballots mailed to their homes.
Voters casting a ballot at an accessible voting center must either show a photo ID or sign a declaration. The signature on the declaration must match the signature in the voter registration record, according to the county.
On Tuesday, Nov. 6, Election Day, the center will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Bellevue City Hall is at 450 110th Avenue NE, Bellevue, WA.
