Voter registration continues during Licensing systems update

Tuesday, August 28, 2018

During a Department of Licensing (DOL) system upgrade scheduled for Labor Day weekend, online voter registration and updates will be unavailable at

However, Washington residents can still make and update voter registrations via downloadable, printable forms available at the Office of Secretary of State’s elections website.

The Secretary of State’s voter registration page contains forms for new Washington voter registrations and updates to existing voters’ information, such as name or address changes, that can be printed in any of 21 languages and submitted by mail or in person at county elections offices. 

Organizers of voter-registration drives that will take place during DOL’s update can request to be mailed up to 1,000 blank registration forms for use as well, in English, Spanish, Chinese, or Vietnamese.

During the Department of Licensing system unavailability, visitors to the MyVote site will still be able to check their registration status. 

The system is scheduled to resume full service Tuesday, Sept. 4. The Licensing system is being upgraded to incorporate improved security for Washington driver license and identification cards, offering increased privacy for state residents.

Washington’s Office of Secretary of State oversees a number of areas within state government, including managing state elections, registering corporations and charities, and governing the use of the state flag and state seal. The office also manages the State Archives and the State Library, documents extraordinary stories in Washington’s history through Legacy Washington, oversees the Combined Fund Drive for charitable giving by state employees, and administers the state’s Address Confidentiality Program to help protect survivors of crime.
