Voter Registration

Voting is crucial to living in the society you want. Many people think state and federal voting are the most important. While voting on these levels is incredibly important, local elections are equally if not more important. Local elections directly affect the area where you and your family live, so register to vote to make a difference in your community today.

How to Register to Vote

There are three ways to register to vote:


You can register online, 24 hours a day, at the Washington Secretary of State’s website. To register online, you will need:

  • A current Washington State driver’s license, or
  • A current Washington State ID card

If you do not have either of these, you can still register by mail or in-person.
