When will ballots be mailed? Is there a ballot drop box near me? I’ll be out of town for the election, can I still vote? How do I update my mailing address? I lost my ballot, what now?
These are just a few of the calls we often get around election time and you can rely on our incredible phone bank staff to answer your election questions!
Phone bank staffers take a two-day training, ending with a round of phone bank Jeopardy to test their knowledge and skills and help them prepare for the upcoming November General Election. We quiz them on a ton of elections information so they will be ready to help our voters with any question that comes up.
Our phone bank officially opened on September 28 and we have total of 37 team members ready to use all they have learned to assist King County voters. Calls are already coming in and so far, the top three voter questions pertain to voter registration updates, general voter registration information and an estimated delivery date for ballots. Each staff member is also at the ready with information on:
- Getting a replacement ballot,
- Using our online ballot marking program,
- Returning voted ballots,
- Locating a ballot drop box,
- Resolving signature challenges, and
- Voting at an Accessible Voting Center
