Election Day SOS: Last-Minute Tips for Voters

Happy Election Day! Here's a quick reference guide if you're still holding on to a ballot.

Your ballot must be postmarked today (Tuesday, Nov. 5). Before you drop your ballot into the nearest blue mailbox, look at the sticker on that mailbox to see what time mail is collected. If you've missed that deadline you'll need to head to the post office to make sure your ballot is accepted in time.

If you don't make it, you have until 8 p.m. to get your ballot into a drop box. They're set up at several locations. (See lists by county: King / PierceSnohomish / other counties).

If you're still making up your mind—hey, it happens!—you can learn about the candidates and issues through our election coverage.

Once you've voted, sit back and relax. And check back for results and stories.
