Today is Election Day: Remember to vote

Red, white and blue VOTE logo with starsA reminder that today, November 6, is Election Day. Ballots must be postmarked today or dropped off in postage-free ballot drop boxes by 8 p.m. tonight to be counted.

The Olympia School District does not have any measures or candidates on this year’s election ballot; however, the district regularly reminds voters of upcoming elections.

The Thurston County Auditor’s Office mailed local ballots to registered voters on October 17. All Washington state elections are vote-by-mail.

Ballot drop boxes are open 24 hours daily and will continue to accept ballots until 8 p.m. tonight. For a list of drop box locations in the Olympia School District, visit the Thurston County Auditor’s Office elections division website.

Replacement ballots are also available at the Thurston County Auditor’s Office, located at 2000 Lakeridge Dr. S.W., Building 1, Room 118 in Olympia. Voters may also contact the Auditor’s Office at (360) 786-5408 or
