Ballots for levies that help fund all Whatcom County school districts are due Tuesday, Feb. 9.
Every Whatcom County voter should have received a ballot with a levy for their local school district; Bellingham schools put two levies on the ballot. Voters who live in the Marietta area also will see a levy to help pay for operations of Fire District 8.
Voters can save the 49-cent stamp by dropping off ballots in a drop box. A list of sites is included with ballots mailed to voters and is online at whatcomcounty.us/1863/Ballot-Drop-Box-Locations.
Ballots must be postmarked by Feb. 9 or in a drop box by 8 p.m. that day. To ensure your ballot is postmarked in time, the Whatcom County Auditor’s Office recommends mailing it no later than Monday, Feb. 8.
Registered voters who have not received a ballot should call the Auditor’s Office at 360-778-5102.
