School, fire levy election ballots mailed to Whatcom voters

Ballots for next month’s special election were mailed Wednesday, Jan. 20. All school districts in Whatcom County and Fire Protection District 8 are asking voters to approve levies.

Voters will also receive an abbreviated version of the local voters’ pamphlet in the envelope with their ballot for the Feb. 9 election.

Voters who haven’t received their ballot by Jan. 29 should call the Election Division of the County Auditor’s Office at 360-778-5102 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

The Auditor’s Office is encouraging voters to return their ballots early. Feb. 9 is the deadline for returning ballots, which must be postmarked by that date or deposited in an official ballot drop box by 8 p.m. that day.

Find a list of drop box locations at whatcomcounty.us/auditor by clicking on “Voters,” or check the voters’ pamphlet enclosed with the ballot.
