Oct. 22No cause for concern for voters who receive more than one ballot in the mail
More than 200,000 voters registered to vote or updated their voter information in the weeks leading up to the date King County mailed ballots for the November presidential and general election. As a result, some voters receive two ballots--one that has actually been suspended (but not in time to prevent it being mailed) and a second “replacement” ballot that is current and ready to be voted. Voters who receive two ballots should vote the ballot in the envelope marked “replacement ballot” which is accompanied by a printed explanation and instructions.
