Time is fading for new Washingtonians to register to vote

 

Register to vote today, or wait in a really long line on Monday.

That’s the message from Spokane County Auditor Vicky Dalton for those who want to vote in the November election but still aren’t registered.

Monday is the deadline to register, but Dalton warns that in 2008 -- the last presidential election year, the county elections office was slammed on the deadline date.

 

Only Washington residents who have never voted in Washington are still able to register in time for the November election.

About 1,700 people registered at her office on the last day in 2008, Dalton said. About 1,200 registered on the last day in 2000. Today and Friday, the elections office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. She said that starting at 4 p.m. Monday, the line will not be allowed to grow.

Those planning to register need to bring a state-issued ID or provide the last four digits of their Social Security Number.
