SUCCESS through persistence…in an effort to increase voter turn-out, "Women Democrats for Action" has been working diligently since February 20, 2018, to fulfill the State Legislature’s House Bill 2173 requiring a ballot drop box be... "established in each city, town, and census-designated place with a post office.”
We would like to thank Garth Fell, Elections Manager for Snohomish County, and Gina Hortillosa, Director of Public Works for the City of Mill Creek, in working with us to install the City of Mill Creek’s ballot box now located at the turnaround on 159th Place SE near the Mill Creek Post Office, 15833 Mill Creek Boulevard, Mill Creek.
Voters are encouraged to return completed ballots as soon as practical. Ballots may be returned in their signature envelope any time before 8:00 pm on Election Day, November 6.
The Mill Creek ballot box was not listed on the insert that was mailed with voters’ ballots or in the local voters’ pamphlet for the General Election, due to uncertainty on the installation date.
Individuals still have time to register to vote before the General Election but must register in-person at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office no later than Monday, October 29th. The Snohomish County Auditor’s Office is located at 3000 Rockefeller Avenue, 1st Floor Administration West Building, Everett.
“Elections remind us not only of the rights but the responsibilities of citizenship in a democracy.” ~Robert Kennedy
