Special Election ballots mailed


April 11, 2018

Ballots for the April 24 Special Election were mailed to 380,000 registered voters in Snohomish County.

The Sno-Isle Library District is asking voters to consider funding measures. The Sno-Isle Library District includes all portions of Snohomish County with the exception of the cities of Everett and Bothell and the towns of Index and Woodway.

The April 24 Special Election will also be the first opportunity for voters to experience a new ballot layout. The new layout is a result of an upgrade Snohomish County Elections has made to its vote counting system. Voters will now mark their choices by filling in an oval.

While ballots include clear instructions on how to mark and return a ballot, election officials believe the transition will be easy and intuitive for most voters.

Voters interested in seeing if their ballot and other mail is ready for delivery may sign up for Informed Delivery with the U.S. Postal Service. The Informed Delivery tool provides images of mail pieces scheduled for delivery either through an email or an online application. This service is not available in all parts of Snohomish County. Visit for more information and to sign up.

Voters are encouraged to return their completed ballots as soon as practical. There are several options available for returning your ballot - through a ballot drop box, an accessible voting site, directly to the Auditor’s Office, or by mail.

For the Special Election, the following ballot drop box locations will be open. Boxes at these locations are available 24-hours a day until 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, April 24, and no postage is needed.

For Mukilteo, the drop box is at 4675 Harbour Pointe Blvd.

If you are registered to vote and have not received a ballot by April 11, call 425-388-3444.
