Tuesday, September 28 is National Voter Registration Day. The League of Women Voters of Washington and local Leagues across Washington state urge all eligible persons to check their registration status at VoteWA.gov. Voters can register or update their registration if needed so they are ready for the November 2 general election.
The November 2021 general election is about local positions and ballot measures. From mayor to city council to school board to special district commissioners—these and many more local positions are up for election this year. In many communities, local ballot measures are being voted on as well.
LWV of Washington President Lunell Haught urges all citizens age 18 and older to visit VoteWA.gov on Tuesday, Sept 28 as part of National Voter Registration Day. “The League encourages everyone to check their registration status on September 28. Our democracy depends on all eligible voters participating in this important decision-making process. Now is the time to make sure you’re ready.” The 18-day voting period begins Friday, October 15. Registered voters should expect to receive their ballots in the mail around that time.
