New Bremerton vote center to open for February election day

Kitsap County also has voting centers in North and South Kitsap

A new voting center will be coming to the Marvin Williams Recreation Center in Bremerton just in time for the Feb. 11 special election, the Kitsap County Auditor’s Office announced Tuesday.

The voting center will open at 7 a.m. on election day to serve voters who require election services and those who desire to vote in a dedicated polling place. Ballots will be mailed by Friday for voters within the Bremerton School District boundaries.

“We’ve had vote centers in South Kitsap and North Kitsap ever since the county went to all vote-by-mail elections,” Kitsap County Auditor Paul Andrews said. “With the addition of same-day voter registration and anticipating a busy election year, the time is right to add a new site.”

Five drop boxes will be open for the upcoming special election, as well as the Port Orchard Vote Center located at the County Administration building. Voters can find drop boxes near them by going to kcowa.us/vote.

Voters can use the vote centers to register to vote, update an address, and get replacement ballots. Voters with disabilities can use a dedicated Accessible Voting Unit and every service available in the Elections Division of the Auditor’s Office is available at each voter center.

All three voting centers will be open for the presidential primary on March 10. If there is a special election in April, vote center locations will be based on where ballot measures are taking place. For the primary in August and the general election in November, the vote centers will be open on the Saturday and Monday before the elections, as well as Election Day. Ballots for the presidential primary will also be mailed Friday to military and overseas voters and Feb. 21 to the rest of the county’s voters.
