Clallam voter registration deadline approaching

PORT ANGELES — Ballots for the 2018 February special election have been sent out to voters in the Port Angeles and Cape Flattery school districts, and a voter registration deadline is approaching, according to the Clallam County Auditor’s office.

New state voters must register in person by Monday at the Auditor’s Office in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles, to participate in the special election.

Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day on Tuesday, Feb. 13, or returned to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. that day.

Ballot drop-off options include a 24-hour drive-up box at the Clallam County Courthouse and a walk-up box at Forks City Hall, 500 E. Division St.

For those with disabilities, an accessible voting unit for independent voting is also available at the Auditor’s Office.

The Sequim drop box in JCPenney’s parking lot will not be open for this election, the auditor’s office said.
