Ballot return drive-thru

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- There's now a drive-thru for dropping off your ballot in Benton County.

You can drop off your ballot at the Kennewick Auditor's Office on Canal Street, or at the Richland office next to the Fred Meyer on Wellsian Way.

Officials say they expect 4,000 ballots to be dropped off at the Kennewick location Monday and even more Tuesday.

The drive-thru will be open until nine Monday night and from 8am to 8pm Tuesday.

The auditor's office says they've learned from previous busy years that this is the best way to handle the last minute rush of ballot returns.
