General election ballots for Spokane County began hitting the post office today.
County elections is mailing a total of 265,768 ballots to registered voters. They started today and will finish on Thursday. That means if you don't get a ballot by next Friday, Oct. 28, something might be amiss and you want to call the county elections office, at 477-2320, to find out what's going on while there's still time to get a replacement in the mail.
It is still possible to register to vote for the Nov. 8 general election, although you'll have to go to your county elections office to sign up in person.
After they are marked, sealed and signed, ballots can be returned by mail as long as they are postmarked by Nov. 8, or deposited in a drop box at locations set up in each county.
The locations of Spokane drop boxes can be found inside the blog.
