Ballots to Be Sent to Yakima Voters Thursday
If you're registered to vote you'll be able to make your choices at the end of the week.
that's because more than 100,000 ballots will be sent to voters in Yakima County on Thursday. Auditor Charles Ross says if you're not registered you can sign up online or by mail until July 29. After that you can register in person at the auditors office in the Yakima County Courthouse and vote in the August 6th primary election.
When you send you ballot back to the county remember you won't have to pay for postage. Every ballot will now come with a pre-paid ballot-return envelope. Ross also says they're registering future voters as well. He says "16 and 17-year-old residents can now enroll in the Future Voter program to automatically be registered to vote on their 18th birthday. "
Future Voters who turn 18 on or before Tuesday, Aug. 6, can vote in the 2019 Primary, while those who turn 18 on or before Tuesday, Nov. 5, can vote in this year’s General Election.
