Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the Aug. 16 election.

Voters can check if registration information is current by using Your Voter Guide, calling the Voter Hotline at 206-296-8683 or visiting King County Elections from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays at 919 S.W. Grady Way, Renton.

If a voter misses the Monday deadline to register online or by mail, he or she can register in person at the elections office through Aug. 8.

If a voter needs to update his or her registration but misses the Monday deadline, he or she should contact the office to update the information for future elections.

“Every election brings interesting and important choices, but you need to be registered to vote,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a statement. “Voters who are already registered can help us make sure their ballots reach them and help lower election costs just by keeping their addresses up to date.”

Issaquah city and school district voters do not face any primary elections on the Aug. 16 ballot. The countywide veterans-and-human-services levy appears on the ballot.

Residents can also head to the elections office for a self-guided tour to observe the election process in action. The office recommends 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. from Aug. 1-19 as the best times for viewing, or 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, Aug. 16.
