If you aren’t a registered voter in Washington but want to vote in the special election period ending Feb. 14, here are registration deadlines to keep in mind.

Today, Jan. 16 is the last day to register online or make online updates to your name or address. Because Jan. 16 is the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday and the U.S. Postal Service isn’t delivering mail that day, our Elections Division is urging county elections offices to accept mail-in registrations or updates postmarked Jan. 17. Go here to register online or to print out a voter registration form.

If you’re currently not a registered voter in Washington, you have until Feb. 6 to register in person at your county elections office.

Counties will mail ballots to military and overseas voters on or before Jan. 15, with the remaining ballots being sent to all other voters by Jan. 27.

Thirty-four of the state’s 39 counties have at least one district with a measure appearing on the February Special Election ballot. Of the 103 ballot measures throughout the state for the February election, 79 are for school levies. The others cover city, fire, park, library, hospital and cemetery measures.

For more information about the February Special Election, contact your county elections department or the Secretary of State’s Elections Division.
