If you haven’t ever registered to vote before, you still have time. If you turn 18 on or before November 8, you are eligible to register and vote.
If you are registered in another state, and want to vote in Washington State instead, you still have time to register here.
But you have to go to your county’s elections office during regular business hours, by close of business Monday, October 31, and register.
In King County, new voters can still register at the King County Administration Building at 500 4th Ave, or at the election headquarters in Renton.
The King County Administration Building is just a block east of Pioneer Square light rail station. Voter registration is open there 8:30 am – 4:30 pm through this Friday, and then next Monday.
The county elections HQ is at 919 SW Grady Way, in Renton. Normal office hours there are 8:30-4:30 Monday through Friday, but the office will be open through 6 pm this Thursday and Friday and next Monday, and will be open Saturday 9 am – 3 pm. Metro’s F Line stops at Lind Ave SW and SW Grady Way three long blocks east of there. The F Line also serves Tukwila International Boulevard light rail station.
In Pierce County, you can still register at the Pierce County Elections Center, 2501 S 35th St, accessible via Pierce Transit route 3.
If you are on the fence about registering here, consider that Regional Proposition 1, a major regional expansion of light rail and other transit service, is on the ballot.
Those who have already registered have dozens of ways to return your ballot. You can also vote in person at your county elections office (but not at the King County Administration Building). More walk-in voting locations will become available a few days before the election.
