Register to vote by Oct. 7
September 24, 2013
Election Day is not until Nov. 5, but citizens should prepare now to make sure their voice counts by registering to vote.
Oct. 7 is the deadline for mail-in registration, address change and other updates.
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.
