Register to vote by Monday
By Mitchell Roland - Staff Reporter
If you're planning on voting in this year's election but aren't registered, you have to act fast.
The deadline to register on- line to vote in November's elec- tion is Monday. After that, if you want to register to vote you have to go to the King County elections office in Renton.
Items on this year's ballot in- clude four initiatives, races for the Legislature, a U.S. Senate race and every member of the U.S. House of Representatives.
These races can have an im- pact of the amount of tuition you pay for school. For example, this year there was a 2.2 percent tui- tion increase statewide that was passed by the state Legislature during the last legislative session.
Students in political science classes on campus are holding a voter registration drive to sign up anyone last minute who wants to vote.
To vote in this year's election, you must be 18 years old or old- er by Nov. 6, you must be a res- ident of Washington, you must be a citizen, and you cannot be a convicted felon. You will also need a driver's license or other Washington state I.D. when reg- istering.
This event happens two times a year, and the students typical- ly register 30 to 50. If you would like to register by mail instead, the students will also have paper forms available to fill out and turn in.
The registration drive will take place on Monday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Student Union Building outside of the Bookstore.
