Election Day is a little more than a month in the future, and voters can still register to vote or update voter registration information.

Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, and King County Elections used the observance to encourage people to join the electorate.

“If you haven’t yet registered, today is your opportunity to join thousands of citizens across the country who are honoring our democratic process by registering to vote,” Elections Director Sherril Huff said in a statement.

Election Day is Nov. 6, and the elections office plans to send out ballots in mid-October. Voters must postmark or drop off ballots at designated locations by Nov. 6.

The deadline for mail-in registrations and updates is Oct. 6, and the deadline for online registrations and updates is Oct. 8. The deadline to register in person is Oct. 29.

Find details, registration forms and links to online registration at the King County Elections website, www.kingcounty.gov/elections. Residents also can call the Voter Hotline on weekdays at 206-296-8683.

Voters can register in person at King County Elections at 919 S.W. Grady Way, Renton, weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. In addition, the Voter Registration Annex, 500 Fourth Ave., Room 311, Seattle, is open weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The elections office also provides voter registration forms in Spanish, Chinese, Cambodian, Korean, Laotian, Russian and Vietnamese.
