Vote centers in Washington state open ahead of Tuesday's general election

Elections offices around Washington state have opened in-person vote centers ahead of the Nov. 3 general election to help voters cast their ballot.

SEATTLE — County elections offices around the state have opened vote centers ahead of the November 3 general election.

These are in addition to dozens of drop box locations.

The state and counties are encouraging people who might need services at locations like these to act early. 

"We are going to do everything possible to make sure you use your right to vote, cast your vote," said King County Executive Dow Constantine at a Saturday press conference.

This is the first presidential election where you can register to vote and vote the same day in our state. Because of that, they are concerned a large number of people might show up at these locations Tuesday and that could mean long lines.

"I can promise you that the longer you wait to get to a vote center, the longer you're going to have to wait in line," said King County Elections Director Julie Wise.

Secretary of State Kim Wyman said she heard some people are waiting to come to vote centers instead of mailing ballots.

As long as you're in line before 8 p.m. to vote or register to vote, you are guaranteed to have your ballot counted.
