Important Mail-In/Absentee Ballot Update
On Monday, March 7, it was brought to our attention that some completed and mailed ballots were had been returned to the sender by the USPS. There was an issue with the third-party tabulation vendor’s expired forwarding mail service causing ballots to be returned to sender. This issue was immediately resolved, and the Chair of Pierce Conservation District, Washington, per in accordance with WAC 135-110-800 and WAC 135-110-810, has issued an Emergency Proclamation regarding the impacts of the mail forwarding error and allowing for additional time for mail-in ballots.
Voters that had their ballots returned, have three ways to submit their returned ballot. Important: DO NOT open the Official Mailing Envelope. This will invalidate the ballot.
- Resend the returned-ballot via mail (remove the yellow sticker and place a new postage stamp over the old postage stamp). Must be postmarked by March 22nd.
- Drop the ballot off in our Ballot Lockbox at the District office (308 West Stewart Avenue, Puyallup, WA 98371) by 3pm on March 22nd.
- Drop the returned-ballot off in person at the District’s polling site (Pioneer Park Pavilion, 330 South Meridian, Puyallup, WA 98371) on March 15 between 4-8 pm.
