Election Reminder: Monday is registration deadline

Monday is the last day to register to vote in Washington. You may think you’ve heard this warning before, and in a sense, you have because the state closes down its registration process in steps. The deadline for registering by mail or online has long passed. Monday is the deadline to register in person at your county elections office.

To do so, you must show up with a state-issued ID or supply the last four digits of your Social Security number.

County Auditor Vicky Dalton also suggests showing up early. In 2008, there was a big rush at the end of the last day. The office at 1033 W. Gardner closes at 4 p.m., and anyone not in line by then won’t be allowed to register.

Monday’s it. Get registered or sit election out

Monday is the last day to register to vote in Washington state for the Nov. 2 election.

Honest. No kidding. That’s it.

And if you aren’t registered now, but want to vote, you’re going to have to do a little bit to be able to exercise your voting rights.

Not shed blood, or sell your first-born child or anything like that.

You’re going to have to go to theCounty  Elections Office, in person, and fill out the form. None of this clicking on a Web site or mailing it in. We’re thinking that if it’s worth it to you to vote, you can make the trip.

In Spokane County, the Elections Office is at 1033 W. Gardner, which is a few blocks north of the County Courthouse.

(The courthouse? It’s that building that looks like a castle, just off Monroe on Broadway. You can’t miss it, really.)

Elections office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring some ID, and you can get registered to vote.
