King County Elections is urging voters turn in their ballots before inclement weather.
Snow storms are expected later this week and into next week, according to the National Weather Service. This could result in possible delays with US Postal Service, King County Elections said in a press release.
“Voters are strongly advised to mail their ballots as early as possible or to use one of 40 ballot drop boxes open for this election,” The press release read.
Renton voters have two school district measures on the ballot: Education and Operations Replacement Levy and Building for Excellence School Bond. The levy renews funds approved in a previous levy for general school funding, and the bond pays for construction of a new elementary school and construction improvements for existing district schools.
The bond requires 18,578 votes to validate the election, and 60 percent to vote yes to pass it. There are currently 12,063 ballots returned for Renton School District voters, according to most recent count Friday.
The levy requires only a simple majority to pass.
Ballots include pre-paid postage so voters do not need a stamp to return their ballots. Ballots must be postmarked by February 12 or returned to a drop box by 8 p.m. Election Day.
