Washington state voting deadline fast approaching

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON (AP) -

Time is running out if you want to register to vote in Washington's General Election.

Monday, Oct. 10, is the last day for citizens to register via online or via mail or to update their voter registration information.

Washington is one of eight states that allow voter registration and registration updates via the Internet.

Ballots go out by Oct. 21 and must be postmarked or returned to an official drop box or elections office by Nov. 8.

There is an estimated 20 percent of the state population eligible to vote in Washington who haven't registered.

Oct. 31 is the in-person registration deadline for brand new Washington registrations.

Voters need to fill out and turn in a voter registration form at their county elections office.

You need to be an American citizen, a legal resident of Washington State; and at least 18 years old by Election Day to register.

You may not register or vote if you have been convicted of a felony and not had your voting rights restored, or been declared by a court to be mentally incompetent and ineligible to vote.
