Who can register? You can register to vote for an up coming election if you will be 18 or over on election day, and have lived in your precinct for 30 days immediately preceding that election day.

A person convicted of a felony can register to vote in Washington once they are out of jail and off community custody.  Sometimes they can sooner.   See this page on the voting rights of those with felonies for more information.

The deadline for mail-in registration forms is Monday, October 7, 2013. You may register in person at your county courthouse for a few days after that deadline.

Don’t be disenfranchised! If they have not received your ballot but you know you are registered, tell them to call the our County Elections office or the County Auditors Office.

Make sure their  voter registration is updated for your current address. When you move you need to re-register because the county needs to know where to send your ballot.

How do I register? You can register on-line at the Secretary of States website.  You can often obtain a voter registration form at the post office or county court house, or you can request or print one at http://www.secstate.wa.gov/elections/register.aspx
