Mid-Term Elections

VotersGuideWith mid-term elections coming up on November 4th, the Elections Office is the best place to go for important dates, a voter’s guide, and elections results for the state and county. If you have not yet registered, you have until October 27th to register to vote in person at the Spokane County Elections Office. You can also check on your registration status if you have not received your ballot in the mail. The MyVote page will also give you specific information about your ballot, your previous elections, and your districts and elected officials. And remember you can turn in your ballots at any of the library’s election drop boxes – found at all Spokane Public and Spokane County library branches. More voter guidance can be found at Voting for Judges and the Living Voters Guide.
