Voter registration deadlines approach
January 14, 2014
Be sure you’re ready to vote in the Feb. 11 special election.
The deadline for in-person registration for new Washington voters is Feb. 3.
More than half of King County voters will receive ballots, which will be mailed Jan. 22. Sixteen school districts, including Issaquah, the city of Issaquah and the Klahanie Annexation Area have measures on ballots.
To register to vote, you must be a citizen of the United States, a legal resident of Washington state, at least 18 years old by Election Day, not disqualified from voting due to a court order and not under state Department of Corrections supervision for a Washington felony conviction.
Voters should return ballots as early as possible. Voters returning ballots by mail need to affix first-class postage. Note that postage rates will increase to 49 cents Jan. 26.
Ballots must be postmarked by Feb. 11. Voters can return a ballot without postage at any of eight drop boxes, including in Issaquah at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way, 24 hours a day starting Jan. 23 until 8 p.m. Election Day.
Registered voters who have not received a ballot or need a replacement ballot should call the voter hotline at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
