Portland, OR (KXL) — Clark County elections officials have added more ballot drop boxes in a move to encourage confidence in the local mail-in voting system ahead of the November 3rd election.
County auditor Auditor Greg Kimsey says they’ve added eight ballot drop boxes across Vancouver and unincorporated areas of Clark County.
In a statement, Kimsey also encourages people to continue using the U.S. Postal Service for their mail-in ballots.
“We are confident the U.S. Postal Service will continue to provide very good service for Clark County voters for this year’s General Election,” said Kimsey.
“We encourage voters to deliver their ballot via the U.S. Postal Service using the prepaid postage or to one of the official ballot drop boxes. We strongly discourage voters from giving their ballots to anyone other than someone they personally know and trust for delivery.”
Returning a voted ballot early allows a voter to determine in advance of Election Day if it was received by the Elections Office and its status.
Voters can find that information at www.VoteWA.org or by contacting the Elections Office at (564) 397-2345 or [email protected].
Here are the ballot drop box locations:
