Monday, October 10, is the last day before the November 8 general election for voters to register online or to update an existing registration.
The deadline to register by mail has been extended to Tuesday, October 11, because of the Monday, October 10, Columbus Day postal holiday.
New Washington voters may register through October 31, but after Monday, October 10, they must register in person at the King County elections office in Renton or the County elections registration annex in downtown Seattle.
Voters register online
Mail registration forms are available at the elections office, 919 SW Grady Way, Renton; at the elections annex, 500 4th Ave., Room 440, Seattle, at any local library and at some other government offices. Forms also are available online.
Voters who register by mail need to have them postmarked by Octobrt 11. That means being aware of pick-up times at local post offices.
