Voter deadlines approaching for primary

Several voter registration deadlines are quickly approaching for area residents looking to cast a ballot in the primary on Aug. 1.

Clallam County residents have until Monday, July 3, to register by mail or online, transfer their voter registration from another Washington county or update their current voter registration.

Those registering online can do so through MyVote at Registered voters also may update their voter information through that website or by contacting Clallam County Elections at 417-2221 or

New Washington voters have until July 24 to register in person at the Auditor’s Office in the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles.

A primary allows voters to choose among all candidates running for each office, for the purpose of narrowing each race down to two candidates for the General Election in November.

The primary will be nearly countywide, as commissioner candidates for Fire Districts 2 and 3, and city council candidates for Port Angeles and Forks vie for placement on the General Election ballot. Port Angeles city residents also will be voting on a Transportation Benefit District proposition.

Ballots will be mailed on July 12. Only registered voters living in the aforementioned jurisdictions will receive a ballot.

A local Online Voters’ Guide is available on the Clallam County Elections website at Printed voting guides are not produced for primaries.
