Elections working quickly to ensure registered voters receive ballots for Aug. 6 primary election
The Clark County Elections Department is working overtime to ensure registered voters in one precinct receive their ballots in time to have their votes counted in the Aug. 6 primary election.
The Elections Department plans to mail ballots late Tuesday to 392 registered voters who became residents of Vancouver in a February annexation but did not receive ballots.
The Glenwood Hills annexation, which took effect Feb. 28, meant voters in a portion of Precinct 325 became eligible to cast ballots on city of Vancouver races and issues. The area, however, was overlooked during a spring redistricting, and votersí names were not moved to the appropriate jurisdiction.
Precinct 325 is north of Westfield Vancouver mall. It is bounded roughly by Northeast 58th Street on the north, Northeast 54th and 56th streets on the south, Interstate 205 on the east, and 81st Street on the west.
Residents of Precinct 325 who have not received an Aug. 6 primary election ballot can contact the Elections Department at (360) 397-2345 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Walk-ins are welcome at 1408 Franklin St.
Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked no later than Tuesday, Aug. 6. Voters also can drop marked ballots in the red box on West 14th Street a half-block east of Franklin Street or at the Elections Department before 8 p.m.
On primary Election Day, Aug. 6, voters also can take their ballots to one of 16 other drop-off locations around the county. Hours are 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The locations are on Page 16 of the local Votersí Pamphlet, which can be found under Aug. 6 primary election at www.clarkvotes.org. Printed copies are available at the Elections Department.
