The easiest way to register is to use VoteWA, the web app on the Washington Secretary of State’s website. You can register, update your address, look up your precinct number, and learn the names of all your Washington elected officials. Voter registration forms are also available at most public libraries, public schools, and the county Auditor’s office. You may also download and print forms in several languages
