Where you can drop off your ballot in Eastern Washington, North Idaho

In Washington, all mail-in ballots will provide paid postage. Idaho absentee ballots can be mailed or dropped at any elections office.

SPOKANE, Wash — The pandemic is impacting how people around the country are voting in the 2020 general election.

After voters fill out their ballots, they will either need to put them in the mail or find a drop-box near them.

In Washington, all mail-in ballots will provide paid postage, meaning voters don’t need to put a stamp on their ballot. In fact, adding a stamp to your Washington won’t change anything about how it is handled other than wasting a stamp, as it is already handled as First-Class Mail.
