16 and 17 year olds can register to vote in Washington state

Tuesday, September 24, 2019

The next election date is November 5, 2019. 

Under new election laws passed in the last legislative session, residents can register to vote up to Election Day.

You can register to vote online or by mail until 8 days before an election or in-person in downtown Seattle through Election day.

October 28 for the next election.

Registrations done by mail need to be received, not postmarked, by the 8 day, October 28 deadline.

16 and 17 year olds can register to vote now and will have their registrations held until they become eligible to vote.

If they will be 18 by November 5, they can register now and be ready to vote in that election.

To register to vote in Washington, you must be:
  • A citizen of the United States
  • A legal resident of Washington state
  • At least 18 years old by election day
  • Not disqualified from voting due to a court order
  • Not under Department of Corrections supervision for a Washington felony conviction
