Citizens who want to vote in the Nov. 7 general election have until Monday, Oct. 9 to register to vote or update voter registration information online or by mail.

King County Elections will mail general election ballots to all registered voters on Oct. 18, so it’s important that citizens register to vote and keep their address and other information, including their signature, updated.
