Ballot drop boxes get thumbs up from voters

Yesterday I went to see democracy at work. I counted as many as 18 people dropping their ballots at this box outside the King County Administration building while I was sketching. “I wish they could have one in my neighborhood in Redmond. I like this system,” said Luke Su. “It saves a stamp for me and my husband. It’s very convenient. I like it,” said Fay, a voter who didn’t want to give out her last name.
Ballot drop boxes close at 8 p.m. on Election Day, August 18. More information about the primary elections at the King County website.
