Election Day 2018 is Here

More than half the eligible voters in Clallam County have already turned in their ballots on this election day 2018.

The Clallam County Auditor’s Office has received 26439 ballots as of Monday – that equates to just over 50% of the more than 52,000 eligible voters.

Those ballots need to be postmarked today or dropped in ballot boxes by 8 p.m. tonight. On the West End those ballot drop boxes are at Forks City Hall, The Clallam Bay Library, Washburn General Store in Neah Bay and at the Clallam County Public Utility District’s Clallam Bay/Sekiu office.
