With Saturday mail delivery ending this summer, Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman says voters should think about getting their ballots in the mail sooner.

She says ballots should be mailed Friday before Election Day to make sure they are postmarked by the deadline.

The Postal Service plans to end Saturday service on Aug. 3, which will be the final weekend before Washington’s Aug. 6 primary.

Voters also can return their ballots in drop boxes and many counties say more than half their ballots are dropped off.
