Voting Options for All

Updated 2/6/2018

Whether you enjoy the morning sitting at your kitchen table with your coffee and ballot, or insist on going in person to vote, King County gives you options. Find the way that works best for you!

An Accessible Voting Unit

Voters can use our Online  Ballot Marking Program to print out their ballot and return envelope. Ballots received in the mail or printed out can be marked and returned via USPS mail or to one of our ballot drop boxes throughout King County.

While online ballots have been designed to enable voters who are blind or vision- impaired to cast a private ballot, we have another option for voters with disabilities.

Three Accessible Voting Centers have trained staff and Accessible Voting Units (AVUs) available to help voters with disabilities. AVUs come equipped with a touch screen, headphones, keypad and foot paddles. Our Accessible Voting Centers ensure everyone can exercise their right to a private, independent ballot and are open to all King County voters.

Everyone counts and we want to make sure voting is easy and accessible for all!

If you enjoy finding your ballot in the mailbox and voting at home, check your mail because ballots were sent out last week. Your vote is your voice! Share your voting tradition and the hashtag #kcvotes with us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

    You claimed in the Seattle Times you “check” signatures; Many registered on FACEBook in the last month. How in the world do you check signatures on their BALLOTS!!!!!!!

    Hi Diane–You can register to vote online, by mail or in person at King County Elections in Renton or the Voter Annex in Seattle. If you register online, you have to enter your Washington state driver’s license or identification information. We verify your signature from any of the three ways you registered.

      Thank you for your reply. I hope this really works. While I know there have been many changes since the Gregoire/Rossi fiasco, once trust is broken, it never really is the same as it once was.
