Washington Voter Registration Easier Until Oct. 4

If you're a recent resident of the state of Washington, there's a deadline coming if you want to vote this fall. Over at Evergreen Politics, Lynn Allen writes:

Oct. 4th. That's the deadline for doing it the easy way - either online or by mail. Getting as many people as possible out to vote is critical in this election. The easy way is online - and works both for new registrations and change of address.

If you miss that deadline and still want to vote, you can still register in person at your county elections department for another 15 days, Oct. 19th, in this case. More information on rules and regs here.

It's important and, despite the time and effort, it's personally rewarding. I was out talking with undecided voters in Puyallup yesterday and it feels like a win each time an unregistered voter takes a registration form, better yet when you help them fill it out and take it to the mail for them.

Last Call for Voter Registration

I have nothing to do with this. I'm just passing the message along. For those of you who don't live in our state, the League of Women Voters has a state by state rundown of who can register to vote and how. Check it out if you're not registered. Voting is one of the few ways you can change your community or your country to be the way you want it to be. Don't give up that right.
