Vote Your Ballot! It’s Election Day 2021
Today is election day 2021. Auditor Charles Ross says he expects 33 to 34 percent of the ballots to be returned but so far the number of ballots aren't even close to those numbers. If you've waited until the last minute, you have until 8:00 pm Tuesday to drop you ballot in the mail or in a drop box.
Don't forget to sign that ballot envelope
Auditor Charles Ross reminds voters to not forget to sign the ballot envelope.
You don't need a stamp to send your ballot in the mail. You can also drop your ballot in a drop box. Drop boxes are located throughout the county including in city and town halls. To find a location of a drop box near you just click on the link
As of Monday 18% had been returned to the Auditors Office
Ross says his office sent out 128,423 ballots to registered voters in the county. As of Monday 23,651 or 18.6% of ballots have been returned to the Yakima County Auditors Office. If you are looking for information about candidates and issues all registered voters were sent both local and state voter guides.
Some ballots are busy others are simple
Depending upon where you live it’ll be a busy ballot with city and county elections as well as propositions in Selah and Yakima. In Yakima city council seats are open in District 2, 4 and 6. A seat on the Yakima County Commission is up for election as well.
