Officials from the Benton County Auditor's Office and Richland city government dedicated a new ballot drop box in Jefferson Park on Monday.
The box -- on Symons Street in Richland -- was placed after officials gathered suggestions from local groups dealing with laws and issues related to people with disabilities.
The goal was to have a box that would be centrally located and accessible for disabled voters, a news release said.
The new drop box is the second in Richland. The other Richland box is at the Auditor's Office satellite office on Wellsian Way.
Never miss a local story.
The Auditor's Office also is placing drop boxes at West Richland City Hall and Kennewick City Hall.
All of the new boxes will be available by July 19 for voters to drop off primary ballots, which will be mailed July 18.
Primary ballots must be dropped or postmarked by Aug. 7.
