Your voice matters: Register to vote


By Julie Wise

Join me in celebrating National Voter Registration Day on September 25, a time when our partners and volunteers register voters throughout King County. Registering is the first step in exercising your right to vote and help make the important decisions that affect your community.

Registering to vote is simple in King County. You can do it online, by mail, or in person at our office. Even if you move within the county, you don’t need to register again. All you need to do is update your address with us so we can make sure you get your ballot.

This is an important election year, with many state and federal races that will impact your community. Don’t wait another day. Register to vote. And when you’re done, help your friends and family get registered, too. Your community matters. Your vote matters.

 Julie Wise was elected as the King County elections director in November 2015 and will serve through 2019. Wise is a Washington state certified election administrator and is a nationally certified election registration administrator. She has served King County voters for more than 15 years.

We encourage the communities to attend these great sessions. National Voter Registration Day events are being held throughout King County. Here is the link
