Last day to register online in Washington


If you've been meaning to register to vote one of these days, but haven't got around to it yet, Monday may have been your day.

Monday was the last day to register online in Washington, which is about the easiest way to do it. No marching down to the courthouse, swearing an oath on the Constitution and signing a document in blood. (OK, we made those last two things up, but after Monday you will have to go to your local elections office.)

The state elections office said it hit a one-day record with 23,167 registrations on Sunday, spiking after the presidential debate last evening. The state is approaching some 4.2 million registered voters.

Online voter registration ended at midnight.
