New Washington voters can register through 4:30pm Monday to vote in the August 2 primary election, but they must register in person at either the King County Elections Office in Renton or the King County Elections Voter Registration Annex in downtown Seattle.

In-person registration is at the county elections office, 919 SW Grady Way, Renton. The registration annex is at the King County Administration Building, 500 4th Ave, Room 440, Seattle. The elections office in Renton is open Friday and Monday from 8:30am to 4:30pm. The registration annex is open Friday and Monday from 8:30am to 1pm and 2pm to 4:30pm.

Voters who register in person can either get a ballot by mail or vote on accessible machines at the elections offices if they choose to wait for their registration to be validated through the state voter registration database, a wait that requires a few minutes.

The deadline to register on line or by mail or for currently registered Washington voters to update their addresses was July 4.

Washington is a Vote by Mail state. All voters will receive a ballot in the mail. Accessible voting centers are available for those who are not able to privately and independently vote a paper ballot. It is not an option that is offered during the registration process.
