Your vote is your voice!
Wow, it's a big election this time. The presidency is on the ballot, as is our governor and all the way down the list. Fortunately, during this time that voting has become politicized, here in Washington we have a well established and smooth-running vote-by-mail system. Ballots are being distributed to registered Washington voters now.
First, if you're not registered, you can register to vote in Washington (or update your registration if needed) online or by mail through Monday, Oct. 26. You can register in person through 8 p.m. on Election Day — Tuesday, Nov. 3 — at a county elections office.

Return your ballot to an official drop box or by U.S. mail, no stamp needed. Your ballot must be deposited or postmarked by 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 3. If mailed, the USPS recommends mailing your ballot at least a week before Election Day.
