Whatcom voters: Make sure ballots are in hand

THE BELLINGHAM HERALDOctober 24, 2013 

Ballots for the Nov. 5 general election were mailed to registered voters one week ago, so Whatcom County residents who expected a ballot but didn't receive one should contact the county Auditor's Office.

Call the Elections Division at 360-676-6742 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.

Residents who have never voted in Washington can register until Monday, Oct. 28, by appearing in person at the Auditor's Office, Suite 103 of the county courthouse, 311 Grand Ave., Bellingham.

Ballots may be returned by mail with a 46-cent stamp, postmarked no later than Nov. 5. Voters may also turn in ballots at drop boxes located throughout the county. For a list of box locations, go to whatcomcounty.us/auditor and click on "Ballot Drop Box Locations."
