SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane County Elections Office has designated the Spokane Arena and CenterPlace Regional Event Center as ballot drop off locations for the upcoming November election.

These two locations will only be available for drop off on certain days, which are listed below.

Spokane Arena – Main NE Entrance, 720 W Mallon Ave, Spokane, WA 99201

The Spokane Arena will be open in place of the Spokane County Elections Office on November 2 and 3 (Election Day).

  • Monday, November 2 – 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 3 – 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If you are planning to submit your ballot at the Spokane County Elections Office, you can do so up until October 30, anytime from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

CenterPlace Regional Event Center – 2426 N Discovery Pl, Spokane Valley, 99216

  • Friday, October 16 through Monday, November 3 – 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • Tuesday, November 3 – 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Ballots can be dropped off at several other locations across Spokane County. See the map below to find the nearest ballot drop box.

Ballots can also be mailed to the Spokane County Elections Office via USPS, no postage necessary.

The information listed above is also listed in a flyer included with your ballot. However, the flyers note that ballot drop boxes open 20 days prior to election day.

Spokane County Auditor Vicky Dalton said drop boxes are already open because ballots were shipped a week earlier than normal. She added that the reason for the discrepancy was that the flyers were printed before the decision to mail ballots early.
