Ballots for registered voters in Yakima County begin arriving in mailboxes on Thursday and Friday. Auditor Charles Ross says more than 120,000 ballots were placed in the mail Wednesday. Your ballot is due on election day November 3. If you are looking for information about candidates and issues you were sent a state voters guide in the mail. The local voters guide can be found at votewa.gov. Ross says that's a very helpful and informational site for voters. He says it not only has information on local races but also statewide issues and races.
Ross says don't forget to sign the ballot envelope and place it in the mail as soon as possible. You don't need a stamp to send your ballot in the mail. You can also drop your ballot in a drop box. Drop boxes are located throughout the county including in city and town halls.
