Beginning this election season, Clallam County residents will have more time to get registered to vote, thanks to new registration deadline provisions in Substitute Senate Bill 6021 that went into effect on June 30.
Voters whose registrations are received by mail or online no later than eight days before the election will be mailed a ballot.
For the Primary, the deadline for mailed and online registrations to be received by the Auditor’s Office is July 29. After that, residents who register in-person up to 8 p.m. on Election Day at the Clallam County Auditor’s Office (at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles) will be able to vote.
To complete registration online, visit olvr.votewa.gov.
Registered voters may also update their voter information through that website or by contacting Clallam County Elections by calling 360-417-2221 or emailing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of the Aug. 6 primary is to nominate the top two candidates from each contest for the Nov. 5 General Election ballot.
Ballots will be mailed on July 17 to eligible registered voters of Clallam County. A sample ballot and local Online Voters’ Guide are available on the Clallam County Elections website at www.clallam.net/elections.
Printed Voters’ Pamphlets are not produced for primary elections.
