Register to vote in person Monday

People who are not registered to vote in Washington have until Monday, Oct. 29, to register in person to vote in the general election.

Residents can register in Island County at the Auditor’s Office in Coupeville.

Secretary of State Sam Reed urges Washington residents who haven’t registered yet to do so if they want their voice heard in this key election.

“This year’s general election is very important since it includes races from U.S. president all the way down to the local level,” said Reed in a news release. “There also are important and controversial ballot measures, including same-sex marriage, legalizing marijuana, charter schools and reimposing restrictions on tax increases. But you can’t vote unless you’re registered, so make sure to register before it’s too late.”

To register to vote in Washington, people must be a citizen of the United States; a legal resident of Washington State; at least 18 years old by election day; not under the authority of the state Department of Corrections; and not disqualified from voting due to a court order.

For more information, call the Island County Auditor’s Office at 360-679-7366. The office is located at 44 N. Main St., Coupeville.
