This year’s Primary Election is just a few weeks away, and if you haven’t registered to vote and want to take part in the Primary, you need to act soon.
For qualified Washington residents, Monday (July 18) is the standard deadline to get signed up using the quick and easy online registration or by regular mail, or to update your address or change your name.
This year’s Primary is August 16. Since we’re a vote-by-mail state, you’ll be interested to know that the ballots will be mailed by July 29.
There is a late registration deadline on August 8 to sign up in person at your county elections department if you’re not already registered to vote in Washington.
The deadlines to register to vote in the November 8 General Election are October 10 for online or mail registrations, and October 31 for in-person registrations.
