General Election underway, watch live and online
King County Elections now offers three election cams
King County Elections now offers three web cams with live streaming video of November General Election ballot processing activities.
“Local voters and people from all over the world used our first web cam, which was put in place during last year’s general election, to watch our ballot opening process,” said Sherril Huff, Elections Director. “I’m very happy to announce our decision to expand this system to include some additional views of our ballot processing area.”
The election cams display activities in the sorting, opening, and scanning areas of Elections headquarters.
For a full description of the ballot process, watch the “Behind the Scenes: Voting by Mail in King County” video.
King County is the largest county in the U.S. to conduct elections entirely by mail, and the department predicts it will process more than 500,000 ballots this election.
The election cams will provide ‘round the clock footage of ballot processing on the King County Elections website until the election is certified on Nov. 29. Go to www.kingcounty.gov/elections to access the web cams or for more information about elections.
For those who prefer to see the ballot process in person, the King County Elections office also offers a public viewing loop. Visitors can take a self-guided tour without an appointment to observe the election process in action. The viewing loop is open during business hours: week days 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with extended hours on Election Days. For more information, call 206-296-VOTE (8683).
