The Whatcom County Auditor's Office sent out a friendly reminder today saying all mail-in ballots for the primary elections must be postmarked no later than August 16.

Blaine city hall will house a ballot drop box from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on election day only. Drop boxes will also be available at the county auditor's office in Bellingham and via drive-up at the parking lot right next to the county courthouse, also in Bellingham.
