General election 2020 underway in Boundary County

Last week, Boundary County Clerk Glenda Poston, with a great deal of help from Boundary County residents, prepared and mailed over 3,500 requested absentee ballots, officially kicking off the county’s 2020 general election.

A drop box has been set up outside the courthouse for those who prefer to deliver their ballots in person, available from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The drop box is monitored and taken in daily. Those who prefer to mail in their ballots can do so; postage paid return envelopes are included with the ballots sent to voters, along with instructions.

Please remember that to be counted, you must sign your ballot where indicated.

Going forward, new absentee ballot requests will be processed twice weekly, and those voting absentee are asked to return voted ballots as soon as possible and not wait until the deadline at 8 p.m. Tuesday, November 3.

  1. I am mystified by the use of the word “requested” in this article. My wife and I both received an absentee ballot in the mail, yet neither of us “requested” one. Who put this system in place? I though we were having a normal vote-in-person election?
