Monday, Oct. 29 is the last day to register to vote for the Nov. 6 General Election.
New voters (not currently registered in Washington state) can register in person at the Pierce County Election Center through Oct. 29, 2012.
The Elections Division will be open extended hours this Saturday and Monday for voter registration.
Voters will have two choices: they can drive through and register to vote without leaving their vehicles, or they can come into the customer service center for help with more complex questions.
Special voter registration hours:
· Saturday, Oct. 27, 2012 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
· Monday, Oct. 29, 2012 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Registration Location: Pierce County Annex, 2401 S. 35th St. , Tacoma, WA 98409
Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson encourages prospective voters to act soon, as there could be long lines on Monday.
"We're excited to offer drive-through registration, which will be a first for Pierce County. We are expecting as many as 2,000 voters to register over these two days,” she said. “I hope that citizens who are not currently registered will take advantage of this last chance to participate in a very important election.”
To date, there are approximately 440,000 registered voters in Pierce County. More than 39,000 – or 9 percent – have already submitted their ballots.
