If you haven't registered to vote yet, you still have time in both Washington and Idaho. In Washington state, you can't mail in your registration anymore. That deadline has passed, but you can drop it off at your County Auditor's Office by October 28th to be eligible. While ballots won't be in the mail until later this month, sample ballots and voter's pamphlets can be picked up right now.
"It's all vote by mail in Asotin County," said Asotin County Auditor, Darla McKay. "The ballots go in the mail by the 18th and they just need to be postmarked, no later than election day which is November 5th."
For voters in Asotin County, there are also three drop boxes you can use. One sits in the Asotin County Auditor's Office, one behind Lincoln Middle School in the Clarkston Heights and one in the alleyway behind Clarkston City Hall. If you plan to drop off your ballot it must be in the drop box by 8:00 p.m. on election day.
For Idaho voters, this Friday October 11th is the last day to register with your county clerk. However, election day registration is available. Just make sure you bring proof of residence with you.
