Election 2021: Are you still thinking about your voting decision? Check out this information for voters

By now you should have received your ballot papers for the November 2nd parliamentary elections in the mail. If you haven’t decided on a number of local races yet, here are some resources:

Our 2021 Election page has links to our debates with candidates for Positions 1, 2 and 3 of Edmonds City Council, as well as questionnaires and statements from a range of candidates, from the School Board to the Hospital District to the Port Commission.

The Alliance of Citizens for Edmonds (ACE) has also asked candidates questions on topics in which ACE has been involved and provided these answers to voters for review: The Alliance of Citizens for Edmonds questionnaire.

The League of Women Voters of Snohomish County conducted audio and video interviews with candidates available here.

Snohomish County sent out printed voter leaflets with candidate statements, and that is also available online.

It is also worth remembering that the deadline for letters to the editor in support or rejection of candidates was October 14 (the day the ballot papers were sent to voters). We no longer accept these letters.

Voters can register online or update an existing registration at www.votewa.gov or by post by Monday, October 25th or on an accessible voting page.

Voters are encouraged to return their ballot papers early. By returning ballots early, voters can ensure that their vote is included in the first results to be published on election night. There are several options for returning a voting slip – via a ballot box, at a barrier-free polling station or by post (postage).

Voters returning their ballots by post should check the last pick-up time on the mailbox to ensure their ballot is postmarked no later than election day Tuesday November 2nd. The U.S. Postal Service recommends voters return their ballot papers a few days before the election day to ensure timely postmarks. Ballot papers stamped after election day cannot be counted by law.

When in doubt, use one of 32 conveniently located ballot boxes across the county. Locations are listed on an insert sent with each ballot, in the local electoral leaflet, and on the Snohomish County Elections website at www.snoco.org/wahlen. The mailboxes are open on election day, Tuesday, November 2nd, 24 hours a day until 8 p.m.
