Monday is registration deadline for most special-election voters

Monday, January 16, is the last day before the February 14 special election for voters to register online or to update their voting addresses.

The deadline to register by mail has been extended to Tuesday, January 17, because of the Monday, January 16, Martin Luther King Jr. Day postal holiday.

The only item on local ballots is a Shoreline School District bond measure to rebuild the district’s two middle schools and one elementary school and to build an early learning center. It requires a 60 percent “yes” vote to pass, with a minimum turnout of 16,002 voters.

New Washington voters may register through February 8, but after Tuesday, January 15, they must register in person at either the King County elections office in Renton or the County elections registration annex in downtown Seattle. The elections office is at 919 SW Grady Way, Renton; the elections annex is at 500 4th Ave, Room 440, Seattle.

Voters can register online here.

Registration forms are available online here.

Voters who register by mail need to have their forms postmarked by January 17. That means being aware of pick-up times at local post offices.
