Monday, February 1, is the last chance for new Washington voters to register to vote in the February 9 special election.

Only new Washington voters can register this close to an election, and they must do it in person at the County elections office in Tukwila. The deadline for previously registered voters to change their registration addresses and for mail and online registration was January 11.

Any new voter can use the accessible voting machines at the elections headquarters or can get a mail-in ballot to either mark and drop on the spot or take home for mailing or for dropping at drop sites in Bellevue, Tukwila or downtown Seattle. They also can get ballots sent to their homes.

Mailed ballots must be sent so that they get postmarked on or before Election Day. Drop boxes close at 8 pm Election Day.
