The Metropolitan King County Council approved a plan from the Department of Elections to place ballot drop-off boxes in neighborhoods throughout Council District 1 to increase access to voting.

Those locations are:
  • Lake City Library
  • Lake Forest Park City Hall (previously the only local drop site)
  • Shoreline Library, 345 NE 175th, Shoreline 98155
  • Bothell Regional Library

With the transition to vote by mail, the Council requested a plan from the Department of Elections to increase the return of ballots by voters. These locations are part of the 43 drop box sites selected as part of the requested plan.

Rod Dembowski, County Councilmember for District 1, which includes Shoreline, Lake Forest Park, Kenmore, northeast Seattle, said "Proud to have written the legislation and secured the funding for this initiative with Elections Director Julie Wise."

The official ribbon cutting was held Wednesday at the Lake City Library just off Lake City Way at NE 125th and all the new sites are in place and open for your ballots as of Thursday, July 14.

Who could know so much effort was needed to accomplish something so sensible (and overdue)
