Act Now to Protect Prepaid Postage for Ballots

Both houses of the legislature are considering bills that would provide prepaid postage for ballots (SB 5063). Many of us have heard stories of first-time or inconsistent voters who haven’t realized they needed a stamp in order to vote until it was too late. Other voters may not have the transportation and work flexibility to go to a post office during the day to buy one stamp, or they may not have the excess cash to buy an entire book of stamps.

In 2018 Governor Inslee provided the funds for ballot postage on a one-time basis. This year the legislature has the opportunity to make that practice permanent.

Please send the email below to your legislators. We highly encourage you to edit the email to put it in your own words, and to include any stories or examples that will illustrate the importance of these bills.

Thank you for standing up to Empower Voters and Defend Democracy!
