Remember to vote in today’s November 4 General Election.

 

Washington state is all vote-by-mail. Ballots were mailed on Friday, October 17 to registered voters.

 

There are no Puyallup School District measures on this year’s General Election ballot; however, the district posts ballot and voting information on its website in each election as a reminder to vote.

 

Ballots may be mailed or dropped off in marked Vote-By-Mail ballot drop boxes located throughout Pierce County. The drop boxes are open 24 hours, seven days a week, and close at 8 p.m. tonight. No postage is necessary for ballots deposited in drop boxes.

 

Drop boxes within the Puyallup School District are located at:

 

  • Puyallup Library, 324 South Meridian, Puyallup
  • South Hill Library, 15420 Meridian E., Puyallup
  • Edgewood City Hall, 2224 104th Ave. E., Edgewood

 

Voting centers are available throughout Pierce County to provide special assistance to voters, especially those with disabilities. The voting centers, including one located inside the Puyallup Library, will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today.

 

The voting centers offer touch screen voting machines for those who need them to cast their vote, and staff will be on hand to answer questions about topics such as provisional ballots and voter registration. The centers are not polling places.
