Washington Statewide Voter Guide 2024

If you’re here, you want to be an informed voter — maybe you already are! Whether you’re looking for info on the governor’s race, your local legislative district or the U.S. Congress, we can help you make a decision (although we won’t tell you how to vote).

First things first: Are you registered to vote?

  • You should get your ballot in the mail as early as two weeks before the election. Check your registration at vote.wa.gov.
  • You can register online or through the mail until July 29 for the Aug. 6 primary.
  • Washington state also allows same-day registration in person, up to (and including) Election Day.
