The November elections are less than 100 days away and now is the time to make sure you’re registered to vote and that your voter registration address is correct!
Washington state residents can register to vote online.
If you’ve moved since last November, even next door, it’s equally important to update your voter registration address. Your address determines where your ballot will get mailed, and also which district you are in for various races, so having your address up-to-date is important.
The deadline to register or update your address online or by mail is October 10th. You can do so in person until October 31st.
USA.gov makes registering in your state very easy, just go to vote.usa.gov and select your state to get information on how to register.
Trust but verify
Until now and October 31st I’m going to be That Person who is asking everyone he runs across if they’re registered to vote and checked their voter registration address. Because if you aren’t registered, you can’t vote.
And remember, while we will be voting for President this November, we’re also voting for federal and state senators, representatives and in many cases governors and other state officials as well!
