voter-at-drop-box

At King County Elections, we’re all about making the voting process easier and more convenient. That’s why we rolled out 33 new ballot drop boxes in time for the General Election. About 91% of county residents now live within 3 miles of a drop box. And you know what? The extra coverage paid off. More than half (51.4%)  of all returned ballots were brought to a drop box!

That got us thinking: which drop boxes had the highest ballot returns? Out of the 43 total drop boxes, here are the top 20.
