8 p.m. Tuesday.
That’s the deadline for getting your primary ballot on the way to the elections office in Washington state.
And by on the way, that means postmarked, not just dropped in some random mail box at 7:59 p.m. If you are mailing it in today or tomorrow, it usually makes sense to drop it off at the post office to ensure that it will be post marked.
Of course, that means you’ll have to know when your local post office closes, because they don’t necessarily pick up from the mail boxes outside their doors if they closed for the day.
But you can save a stamp and be sure of getting it in by depositing it in an official county drop box. Most public libraries in Spokane County have drop boxes. For a full list, go inside the blog.
