To register in Washington you must:

    • be a citizen of the United States
    • be a legal resident of Washington State, your county and your precinct for 30 days immediately preceding the election in which you want to vote
    • be at least 18 years old by election day (16- and 17-year-olds can sign up as Future Voters and be automatically registered to vote when they turn 18)
    • not be disqualified from voting due to a court order
    • not be under Department of Corrections supervision for a Washington felony conviction

Do you need to register to vote? 

    • Citizens with a Washington State issued ID can complete their voter registration and address updates online at VoteWA.gov
      They will use your signature as shown on the ID to confirm your voter ballots, so make sure it still matches your current  signature.
    • For those without a WA State issued ID, please go to https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/print-voter-registration-forms.aspx and print a registration form to be mailed in. 
      These are available in many languages.

When Voting,

Completed ballots can be returned in an official elections ballot drop box up until 8:00 pm on an Election Day. All 18 drop box locations are printed on the insert that is enclosed with the ballot, as well as in the Local Voters’ Pamphlet.
If you decide to return your ballot by mail, the return envelope must be postmarked no later than Election Day for your ballot to be counted. So VOTE EARLY!

If you did not receive your ballot or need a replacement for any reason please contact our office and we can mail you one. You can also download a replacement on VoteWA.gov. Phone: 360-778-5102

"More than 1,000 ballots in the Aug. 4 primary were rejected because they were postmarked too late or the signature on the ballot didn’t match the signature on their voter registration", Whatcom County elections officials said. 

It’s disappointing, said Auditor Diana Bradrick, who wishes that voters would use one of the 18 ballot drop boxes around Whatcom County if they cast their ballot after the Saturday before Election Day. “The only way to ensure a today (Election Day) postmark is to stand in line and ask the postal clerk to hand stamp it,” Bradrick told The Bellingham Herald on Monday, Aug. 17."
