If you’re voting at a drop box, make sure it’s before 8 p.m.

SPOKANE, Wash. — It’s been a busy day at the Elections Office, and it will get even busier as we head into the evening hours.

We’re told they had lines at the office since they opened the doors at 7 a.m. this morning. If you’re headed out to vote at the Elections Office or at a drop box, the earlier you go, the better.

If you’re using a drop box, make sure it’s well before 8 p.m. There’s a chance there could be long lines at the drop boxes, and if you get in line one minute past 8 p.m., you won’t be able to cast your ballot.

For those who are questioning the district races on the ballots — they changed the redistricting commission this year.

“There are now five county commission districts that will take effect at the first of the year,” Spokane County Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin said. “Currently, you’re still represented by 3 county commissioner districts. The same is for the leg districts.”

They redrew the district lines and most of the unincorporated areas south of Liberty Lake, Spokane Valley and the city of Spokane used to be in a different district. They are now in the 9th district. You’ll be voting on who will represent you in the future.

As for security: so far, so good. Spokane Police Department is on high alert, checking in on election drop boxes and the election offices throughout the day.

The South Hill library and the Indian Trail library are closed for construction, so you can’t vote at these locations.
