The Lewis County Auditor’s Office will mail 229 ballots to military and overseas voters on Jan. 13, 30 days prior to the Feb. 14 special election.
“The advanced mailing provides voters in the military or overseas with time to receive their ballot, learn about the candidates and/or issues, and return their ballot in a timely manner,” the auditor’s office stated in a news release.
For military and overseas voters, the date on the ballot declaration associated with the voter’s signature determines the validity of the ballot. The signature on the ballot declaration must be dated no later than election day and must be received by the office one day prior to certification of the election.
Military and overseas voters can return ballots via fax or email, but ballots submitted that way must be received by the auditor’s office no later than 8 p.m. on election day.
Voters can check their voter registration status and voter registration address and register to vote online at www.votewa.gov.
