There are two important deadlines fast approaching for anyone wanting to register to vote in the November election.  The county auditor will begin mailing ballots on Oct. 19.  This Saturday is the last day to postmark new voter registrations that are mailed in. normally, Oct. 8 would be the last day. But this year, that date falls on Columbus day, a federal holiday. That means no post offices are open and no postal service is available that day. If you have internet access you can register at myvote.wa.gov.

You can also register in person at your county elections office. Oct. 29 is the in-person deadline for new registrations.
