Automatic Voter Registration (AVR)

AVR is a simple, modern, and secure way to keep your registration up to date. Eligible Washingtonians can now register to vote or update an existing registration automatically at the Department of Licensing or other state agencies. Registration via AVR is open until eight days before an election.

Same Day Registration

With Same Day Registration, eligible Washingtonians can register to vote and submit their ballot on the same day. This new change eliminates unnecessary deadlines so more voters can participate. You can register via Same Day Registration in person at your county auditor’s office (find your auditor here) or at any voting center in King County (find the closest voting center here). Same Day Registration is available until 8pm on Election Day.

Pre-registration for 16 and 17 year olds

Eligible 16 and 17 year olds in Washington can now pre-register to vote! After submitting a simple form, pre-registrants will automatically receive a ballot for the first election after they turn 18. Pre-Registration is available year-round on the Secretary of State’s online portal; in person at voting centers, county auditors’ offices, and with volunteers; and at any Department of Licensing office.
