Election Information

Election Security

We are aware that there are many questions and concerns about the security of an election cycle, and are working closely with the Secretary of State's office to ensure that we are prepared and protected against any attempts to compromise any election.

We have had reports of voters being directed to websites with inaccurate information about their ballots.   All official election resources will be presented on government owned websites that end with the .gov extension.   To check the status of your ballot you may go to https://voter.votewa.gov or call the Elections office at 509-397-5284

For information about malicious actors who undermine election integrity please see Governor Inslee's statement on the security of the election: https://www.governor.wa.gov/news-media/inslee-statement-voter-security-and-election-integrity-following-threats
