Everett, WA – Today ballots for the February 12 Special Election were mailed to 101,000 registered voters in Snohomish County. The election features a school bond measure for the Arlington School District and a measure to dissolve Fire District 1 now that the district is part of the South County Fire and Rescue Regional Fire Authority. Only voters in these districts will receive ballots.
Voters are encouraged to return their completed ballots as soon as practical. There are several options available for returning a ballot – through a ballot drop box, an accessible voting site, directly to the Auditor’s Office, or by mail. Postage is not required regardless of how a voter returns their ballot.
