Just one stamp to mail in your ballot

One 47-cent stamp is enough postage to mail in your ballot in Clark County.

That’s the message Cathie Garber, Clark County elections supervisor, wants to get across in response to Facebook rumors and media accounts that voters need additional postage to mail in their ballots.

For Snohomish County, Whatcom County and much of Douglas County voters do indeed have to pay for more postage, reports The Seattle Times, because of the out-sized envelopes or especially large ballots sent out in these counties this year. But not in Clark County.

“We don’t want our voters to put any more postage on than is required,” said Garber.

Garber said that mail-in ballots postmarked by the Nov. 8 Election Day will be counted. She also said that voters can drop off ballots at the county’s drop-off sites by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
