Students

Are You 16 or 17? 

Starting in 2019, 16 and 17 year old students can preregister to vote by completing a voter registration form from the Kittitas County Auditor’s office, or, if the student has a state driver’s license or state-issued ID,  preregister online at MyVote (English) or MyVote (Spanish).

While students can’t vote until 18 years of age, register early and the county auditor will mail a ballot automatically as soon as they are eligible for the election! 

This is adulting made easy!

Be a Voter!

Young people ages 18 through 29 are notoriously difficult to get to the ballot box. This is despite the fact that their sheer numbers – nearly 50 million are eligible to vote – could sway the course of elections across the country.

The League of Women Voters wants to give you all the information you need to make an informed choice and have an impact on the city of Ellensburg and Kittitas County.

This two-page sheet tells you everything you need to know to register and vote in Washington state:
