Elections offers tools and calendars so you'll always know when to expect your ballot and when your vote has been accepted.
With the ballot status tool in VoteWA, you can track your ballot for each election from the time we mail it to you to the time we receive and accept it for counting!
Ballot Tracking Tool Status
|Sent||Your ballot has been mailed to you|
|Received||Your ballot has been received by Snohomish County Elections|
|Accepted||Your ballot has been accepted and will be counted|
|Challenged||Your ballot has an issue, likely with the signature on the envelope|
If your ballot tracking status is "rejected," Snohomish County Elections will contact you by mail to inform you of the specific issue and how to resolve it. Please respond quickly to correct the situation so your ballot can be counted.
Visit the Signature Challenges page for more information about resolving a signature issue.
All ballots are mailed out 19 days before the next election with the exception of Military and Overseas ballots, which are mailed 30 days before special elections and 45 days before primary and general elections. See the timeline below for key ballot dates.
