The deadline for registering to vote in Washington the easy way -- that is, filling out a form you get at a government office or off the Internet, and mailing it in -- is fast approaching.
Those registration forms must be postmarked by Saturday to be valid.
It's still possible to register for two weeks after that. But you'd have to go down to the Elections Office in person and fill out the forms.
So clearly, Saturday is important for the sake of convenience.
