Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 7. It’s free to mail your election ballot via the U.S. Postal Service, providing it’s dated by midnight on election night. Use a post box or one of 35 conveniently located ballot boxes throughout Snohomish County. Drop boxes are open 24/7 from now until 8 p.m. on Election Day, and Community Transit can get you there.
