What happens to the ballots returned through the mail?

Ballots returned through the mail are securely handled and delivered to the county ballot processing facility and directly handed over to no fewer than two county elections employees. At the county ballot processing facility, returned ballot envelopes are marked received in the statewide voter registration and election management system.

 

You can track the receipt and acceptance of your ballot by visiting www.VoteWA.gov.
