King County mails voter registration cards to reflect redistricting changes
May 22, 2012
King County Elections is mailing updated voter registration cards to all King County voters.
The elections office started sending the cards May 21. The cards identify a voter’s precinct, and congressional, legislative and King County Council districts. Many districts changed late last year due to post-Census 2010 redistricting.
The recent redistricting affected more than 600,000 of the 1.1 million registered voters in the county.
Officials plan to mail ballots for the Aug. 7 primary election July 18, so mailing the voter registration cards in May allows time for the county to update records before the primary.
Voters can reach the elections office at www.kingcounty.gov/elections. Or call 206-296-VOTE. Visit elections headquarters at 919 S.W. Grady Way, Renton.
