The three new ballot boxes that are currently open include:

Neah Bay – located in front of Washburn’s General Store at 1450 Bayview Ave.

The fourth new ballot drop box is planned to open on Oct. 31 next to Sunny Farms Country Store, located at 261461 US Highway 101 in Carlsborg. The box will allow for driver’s side drop-off and will be accessed off Mill Road.

Other official ballot drop boxes in the county that are open include:

Forks – located outside Forks City Hall at 500 E. Division St.

Port Angeles – located at the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St., where three boxes are available:

Courthouse Circular Drive

Courthouse sidewalk

Inside the Auditor’s office, available weekdays from 8 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., and 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Nov. 6

Voters may alternatively return their ballots by postal mail. No stamp is needed, but a valid postmark on or before Election Day ensures the ballot is counted. If voters are returning their ballots by mail, we encourage mailing by Friday, Nov. 2, in order to be certain it’s postmarked in time. Otherwise, please use an official ballot drop box, which is open extended hours Nov. 6 for Election Night, when all official ballot drop boxes will close at 8 p.m.
