Citizens who are not registered to vote in Washington state have until 4:30 p.m. Feb. 3 to register to vote in time to participate in the Feb. 11 special election. Citizens must register to vote in person to vote in February.

Sixteen school districts, including Issaquah’s, the city of Issaquah and the Klahanie Annexation Area have measures on ballots this election.

Residents may register at the King County Elections Office, 919 S.W. Grady Way, Renton, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, or the Voter Registration Annex, King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Ave., Room 311, Seattle, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2-4:30 p.m. weekdays.

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 Department of Corrections supervision for a Washington felony conviction.

Returning your ballot

Voters should return ballots as early as possible, but not later than election day, Feb. 11. Voters returning ballots by mail need to affix first-class postage, which recently went up to 49 cents. Ballots must be postmarked by Feb. 11. Voters can return a ballot without postage at any of eight drop boxes 24 hours/day through 8 p.m. on election day. The Issaquah drop box is at City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.

Registered voters who have not received a ballot, or need a replacement ballot, should call the voter hotline at 206-296-VOTE (8683).
