Voting Questions and Answers

Can I Vote?

Yes, if you register and are:

  • A United States citizen,
  • a legal resident of Washington state for at least 30 days prior to Election Day,
  • at least 18 years old by Election Day,
  • not disqualified from voting due to a court order, and
  • not under Department of Corrections (DOC) supervision for a Washington felony conviction. Voting rights are automatically restored once you are no longer under supervision. Not sure? Contact the DOC at 800-430-9674 or Columbia Legal Services at 800-542-0794.

I’m not sure if I’m registered. How can I find out?

Just enter your name and birthdate on the King County Elections website.

Is it too late to register?

No. Online and by-mail registration closes before Election Day, but Byrd Barr Place can register you until 8 days before the election, and you can even register in person at vote centers on Election Day.

When do I return my ballot?

You can return your ballot as soon as you receive it. Your ballot must be postmarked by Election Day or dropped in a ballot box by 8 p.m.

What if I don’t have a permanent home right now?

That’s okay. You can still register and vote at the King County Elections website. Just put wherever you reside right now on your registration form: a friend’s house, a shelter, a park, even an intersection. Your mailing address—where you’ll receive ballots and election information—can be a post office box, the address of a friend, a shelter or general delivery at a local post office.

How do I change my address?

Just enter your name and birthdate on the King County Elections website to get started. It only takes a minute.

English isn’t my first language. Is voter information available in other languages?

Yes! Materials are available in Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Vietnamese, Amharic, Tigrinya, Somali, Oromo and Hindi here.
