It May Be Too Late To Mail Umatilla County Ballots

Posted: Updated:

Tri Cities, Wash - It is time to make those election decisions and some local voters have to decide earlier than others for their vote to count.

Voters in Benton and Franklin Counties have to make sure their ballot is postmarked by November 7th.   However, in Umatilla County, it is a different story.  Those ballots must be received by 8 p.m. on Election Day.

The Umatilla County Elections Manager, Patti Chapman recommends that those ballots be mailed by Thursday, November 2nd.

If you haven't done that already, you may want to take your ballot to one of the drop sites by 8 p.m. on November 7th.

So far, Benton County has received 77,060 ballots, which is 34 percent of the amount mailed out.

Franklin county voters have turned in about 6,500 ballots, which is 32 percent of those mailed out.

10,330 Umatilla county ballots have been turned in, which is a return of 34 percent of the ballots mailed out.
