Some Washington Mail-In Ballots Need 2 Stamps

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE (AP) - As more than 3 million Washington voters finish filling out their ballots in the state's first presidential all-mail election, some should put two stamps on envelopes in counties where the ballot weighs more than an ounce.
    
But don't worry if the postage is short; the Postal Service always delivers.
    
Kitsap County ballots, for example, need two stamps. Auditor Walter Washington says its counting equipment requires heavier paper stock. If postage is a problem for voters, he says they can leave ballots in drop boxes. All counties have a least two drop boxes.
    
A state elections official, Sheryl Moss, says ballots vary by county and counties deal with the post office.
    
Postal Service spokesman Ernie Swanson says it delivers all ballots and asks counties later to make up any shortages.
