Voter registration information

Before you register to vote, make sure you are eligible.

All counties in Washington vote by mail, which means that you'll be mailed a ballot at least 20 days before every election in which you are eligible to participate.  Military and overseas voters, your ballots are mailed earlier.


You can register any time, but if you want to vote in a particular election, make sure to register before the deadline.

Online voter registration

If you have a valid and current Washington driver's license or state ID, visit Washington's MyVote to register online.

Mail it or bring it in voter registration

If you prefer paper or don't currently have a driver's license or state ID, use this registration form.

Address changes

Keep your address updated to make sure you get your ballot.
