Monday is the deadline to register to vote, online or by mail. But it’s also a federal holiday, so post offices are closed.
Because of that, county voter offices will accept registrations postmarked on Tuesday, Oct. 11.
“The state law does say Oct., 10, but we’re saying ‘Come on, people,'" said David Ammons, spokesman for the Washington Secretary of State's office. "If we followed the letter of the law, those postmarks would not be available on those previous two days.”
