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.
