Important Voter Information

Election Day is just around the corner! On November 4th we encourage you to exercise your Constitutional Rights and vote.

Don’t know your precinct? Don’t know which district is yours? Don’t know what candidates are running? Don’t worry!

There are resources available to help you along the way.

Many of you may be new to Washington State. Perhaps this is the first time you have voted here. If you have already registered, you can find out everything you need to help you make an informed decision on the Washington Secretary of State’s website. Click on the "my vote" icon on that page and you are on your way.

Enter your name and birthday and your voter registration information pops up. If you use the drop down menu labeled "voter's pamphlet" you can find out all you need to know about which district you are in and what candidates represent your area. By clicking on each candidate's name, you can read about each candidate. Additionally, you will find the exact wording of each initiative and arguments for and against their implementation.

If you are a resident of King county, visit their election website for more details including the address of your polling place and the locations of ballot drop-boxes for early voting. Still have questions? Check out the official Voter's Guide and you will discover all of the answers to your questions about the voting process.

Don't let lack of information keep you from the polls. Get out there on November 4th and let your voice be heard!
