Some ballots cast, others still on the way to voters' mailboxes

San Juan County Elections office has received 546 ballots already. The company that prints the county's ballots mailed out 13,339. Unfortunately, something went awry at the processing center and the ballots were routed to a different city. This resulted in a delay in getting ballots to the county voters. 

Elections staff said if you haven't received your ballot by Thursday, contact the Elections Office for a ballot or download and print one from the county's website

There are 10 percent more registered voters in San Juan County than there were at the last mid-term election in 2014, when there were 11,985.  In the Presidential General Election in 2016 there were 12,798. 

Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Drop boxes are available at the Orcas Island Senior Center, the Lopez Island Fire Department, on Second Street in Friday Harbor and at the Elections Office at 55 Second Street in Friday Harbor. DIRECTIONS HERE

If you are mailing your ballot, it must be postmarked by November 6.
