Take a tour
See democracy in action! You can walk the 1/5 mile “loop” circling our ballot processing area. See every step a ballot takes, from signature verification to opening to scanning.

The King County Elections office offers a viewing loop for the public to take a self-guided tour without an appointment to observe the election process in action. Download the tour map .
The viewing loop is open during business hours April 3 - May 5 with extended hours on election days. Reservations are not necessary for this self-guided tour.
Elections usually take place in February, April, August and November. We recommend visiting a few days after the loop opens when more ballots are arriving and activity increases.
Contact us for more information or for tours outside of election season.
