Snohomish County Elections has launched an ad campaign aimed at raising awareness and promoting voter participation in the upcoming 2023 primary and general elections.

The campaign — titled “Voting is easy” — uses a variety of mediums, including digital website banners, Community Transit and Everett Transit bus ads, billboards and social media ads. The campaign runs now through November 2023.

The purpose is to drive eligible voters to Snohomish County Elections’ website and social media pages, where they can access comprehensive information about the voting process.

  1. It would be nice if they’d make the ballot boxes more accessible! The drive-by slot is just wonderful…IF you are driving one of those big vehicles that you have to climb a ladder to enter! But from a sedan? You simply can NOT reach high enough (the opening is actually HIGHER than the roof of my Nissan sedan!) to put the ballot in. It doesn’t help that they installed the box (at the MLT library) about 3″ above the level of the parking lot.

    So, you go to the walk-up slot, which is nicely positioned for most people. The only problem is, at the MLT one, anyway, it is not accessible to anyone using a walker or wheelchair! You have to step UP a curb (no ramp) and walk over stepping stones set in dirt (bumpy/uneven surface!! At this point I just use a cane, so I can usually navigate it. I know I can mail it in, but I don’t like that approach.

    Best thing would be to vote in person again, where you have to show ID to prove you are a citizen and a registered voter!

    1. If you think getting out of your car is a barrier to participation, I’m unsure how making people stand in line for hours on one day would be easier.

      Also, the ballots are only mailed to registered voters and the signatures on the returned ballots are compared to the voter registration. Furthermore, with the ballots now coming with a postage paid envelope makes drop boxes a secondary, last minute option as is.
