Time running out for voters

If you haven't voted in the Washington state primary, but have been meaning to, you are running out of time.

The deadline to get those ballots marked, sealed and mailed, or sealed and deposited in a drop box, is 8 p.m. Tuesday.

If you are mailing it in, remember that it's not when you drop it in the mailbox that counts. It's when the U.S. Postal Service post marks it.

So rather than dropping it in a remote maibox on Tuesday afternoon on the way home from work, you might want to stop by the Post Office and have them postmark it. Or save yourself a stamp and put it in a drop box.

In Spokane County, drop boxes can be found at the public libraries, as well as the STA Plaza in downtown Spokane, and county Elections Office at 1033 W. Gardner.

On Tuesday, Spokane County will also have voter service centers at key locations where you can go for help if you lost your ballot, never got a ballot even though you are registered, or spilled coffee on your ballot or did something else to it that could keep the scanner from reading it.

Locations of the voter service centers can be found inside the blog.
