Mail-In Ballots

Are you eager to participate in the elections this year but you are not a registered Washington state voter? You can still vote without going to your county's elections polls with the use of a Mail-In Ballot! We have collected and put together information about how to request one from the states that have a substantial amount of representation at PLU. If you don't see your state listed check out Vote411 or write Eric Q. Buley, the Clubs & Orgs Intern, for more information!
