Online voter registration deadline: TODAY

If you're a Washington resident who has been putting off registering to vote but still want to cast a ballot in the November general election, here's your last warning:

This is the last day to register the relatively easy way, online. You can just go to the Secretary of State's website and follow the instrluctions.

Because this is a federal holiday (Columbus Day), the time has passed to download a form, fill it out and mail it in. You can't get it postmarked today because the Post Offices are closed.

But the Internet does not close down, so you can do it  online.

Miss today's deadline and you'll have to go to your county elections office, fill out the form in person and turn it in, sometime between now and Halloween. But seriously: If you've been procrastinating this long, which are you more likely to do? Click a link and type in some info, or figure out where the elections office is, when it's open and drive over there?

We thought so. Click on the link and get going.

If you're an Idaho voter, never mind. The rules are different there.
