Future voters

16 and 17 year olds can now pre-register to vote! Registrants under the age of 18 will have their registrations held until they become eligible to vote.

When to re-register

Your registration is permanent unless you move or change your name.

Address changes

If you have moved within King County, you must transfer your registration by re-registering. You may choose to write your new address on the back of your voter identification card and mail it to the Clerk's office.

You must re-register with the local election authority or county clerk if you move to an address outside of the King County.

Name changes

Voters who legally change their name, but not their address, do not have to re-register. If you have changed your name, you can vote after updating your information at the polls.
