Ballots due by 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5


Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 5, to turn in their ballots at drop-box locations throughout the county. The Whatcom County Auditor's Office recommends against mailing them at this point because there's a possibility they will not be postmarked in time to be valid.

-- Blaine Library, 610 3rd St.

-- Deming Library, 5044 Mount Baker Highway.
