Election Day is Tuesday, and the Thurston County Auditor’s Office wants to make sure every vote is counted.
Voters who have not received or have misplaced their ballots can request a replacement ballot by contacting the Auditor’s Office at 360-786-5408 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ballots must be postmarked by Tuesday or deposited into one of the county’s 27 ballot drop boxes no later than 8 p.m. Tuesday. A list of drop box locations may be found on ThurstonVotes.org and in your voter pamphlet.
Voters who mail their ballot should check mailbox pickup times to make sure the ballot will receive an Election Day postmark. The Olympia and Lacey post offices also will stay open until 8 p.m. on election night to ensure ballots receive timely postmarks.
The Thurston County Auditor’s Office is a designated voting center. In addition to its regular business hours, which are 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, the Elections Division will be open the following extended hours:
▪ Saturday: 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
▪ Monday: 8 a.m.-7 p.m.
▪ Tuesday (Election Day): 8 a.m.-8 p.m.
During extended hours, voters may obtain a ballot, ask questions, use the AutoMARK voting assistance device or take a selfie with Billy the Ballot Box. The Auditor’s Voting Center is in the Thurston County Courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW, Building 1, Room 152, Olympia.
