Elections in Washington
Washington State votes by mail. Vote by mail is convenient and gives you extra time to learn about the ballot measures and candidates before casting your vote. All counties conduct elections vote-by-mail. All vote-by-mail ballots (also known as absentee) are kept in secure storage while not being processed. Processing includes the verification of signatures and postmarks, removing the inner envelope from the outer envelope and removing the ballot from the inner envelope. Ballots are typically secured with numbered seals and a log is kept of the seal numbers to detect any inappropriate access.
Your ballot is mailed to you at least 18 days before each election. Your ballot packet will include a ballot, a secrecy envelope, and a return envelope. Follow the instructions that accompany your ballot. If you are a registered voter and do not receive your ballot, contact your county elections department.
If you would like to register to vote in another state, you can find information on the Rock the Vote site.
Registering to Vote
Voter registration can happen online, by mail or in person.
To register to vote, a person must be a resident of Washington and be able to answer the following questions on the voter registration card:
- Are you a citizen of the United States of America? and
- Are you at least 18 years of age?
