Are you ready to vote?

Verify your voter registration.  Simply visit myvote.wa.gov and enter your name, address, and date of birth.  If you are not registered or if you have moved, or if something weird has happened to your voter registration, you won’t receive a ballot for the primary election.  In this case, you can still vote in the general election if you update your registration by Oct 8 — don’t delay - contact the Elections Office in Coupeville to make sure you are properly registered for the general election  [email:  Elections@co.island.wa.us;  phone:  360-679-366].  Click here for more information on Island County elections.
