If you’re not yet registered to vote, you must register in person by 4:30 p.m. April 14 to vote in the April 22 Special Election that will include the countywide measure Proposition 1.

Proposition 1 would provide dedicated transportation funding available to preserve current Metro Transit service levels and provide transportation improvements, including road preservation, safety and maintenance projects, by authorizing the King County Transportation District to levy a 0.1 percent sales and use tax and a $60 vehicle fee, each for up to 10 years.

Proposition 1 would also establish a low-income vehicle fee rebate of $20 and provide funding for a low-income Metro Transit fare.

Register at King County Elections, 919 S.W. Grady Way, in Renton from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays, and the Voter Registration Annex, King County Administration Building, 500 Fourth Avenue, Room 440, in Seattle, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. or 2-4:30 p.m. weekdays.

  • A legal resident of Washington state;
  • At least 18 years old by Election Day;
  • Not disqualified from voting due to a court order; and
