Monday is the last day for Washington residents to register or update their voter registration online or by mail. (You can click www.myvote.wa.gov to register online.)
Post offices will be closed Monday in honor of Columbus Day, and mail will not be collected or delivered, making Saturday the unofficial deadline to register via mail.
Several Redmond positions are up for grabs in the Nov. 8 election, including four city council seats. The election also features three statewide initiatives (I-1125, transportation tolls and funding; I-1163, home health-care workers; and I-1183, privatizing liquor sales) and two state constitutional amendments (Senate Joint Resolution 8205, voting in presidential elections; and SJR 8206, dealing with the budget stabilization account).
Ballots go out by Oct. 21 and must be postmarked or returned to an official drop box or elections office by Nov. 8.
Oct. 31 is the in-person registration deadline for brand new Washington registrations. Voters need to fill out and turn in a voter registration form at their county elections office.
