Voter registration deadlines approach
September 25, 2012
In the march to Election Day, local and state elections officials encourage residents to register to vote — by mail, online or, in a recent development, on Facebook.
Oct. 6 is the deadline for mail-in registration and updates. Oct. 8 is the deadline for online registration and updates.
Facebook users can like the Secretary of State’s MyVote app in order to register to vote.
More information about registration — by mail or online — is available at the King County Elections registration website, www.kingcounty.gov/elections/registration.
In order to register as a Washington voter, a person must be a U.S. citizen, a Washington resident, at least 18 by Election Day and not under the authority of the state Department of Corrections.
In Washington, voters do not register by political party or declare political party membership to vote.
