BENTON COUNTY, Wash-- The last day to mail in your ballot is November 4th, that's just two weeks away. Before you mail in your ballot make sure you know whether it needs postage.
If you live in Franklin County you do not need to put a stamp on your ballot. Franklin County is one of the few counties in Washington that does not require postage. If you're in Benton County you are going to need a stamp.

"If you're going to mail your ballot you need to place postage on it or you can drop it by our Richland or Kennewick office," said Bobbie Gagner, Benton County Auditor.

There are three ballot drop off sites in Benton County. They are at the auditor's offices' in Kennewick, Richland, and Prosser.
Franklin County does not require stamps on ballots because the postage is paid by tax payers in the county.
