Sno-Isle Libraries brings voter-registration link to public computers

Sno-Isle Libraries is making it even easier to register to vote.

Every public computer in the library district now includes a
direct link to the Washington State Voter
Registration
page.

“This will improve access to the state voter registration
page and all related information in support of our strategic priority of
building civic engagement,” Lead Librarian for Public Computing Anne Murphy
said. The district’s 23 community libraries across Snohomish and Island
counties have long had printed voter-registration materials available to the
public.

“Now, customers who inquire about voter registration
throughout the year can be directed to any of our more than 500 public computers
to learn more and complete the process,” said Murphy, adding that printed
voter-registration materials will continue to be available at all community
libraries.

The deadline for online and mail-in voter registration is
Oct. 8 to be eligible to vote in the Nov. 6 General Election. That deadline
also applies to all address changes, name changes and other updates. New voters
may register in-person by the Oct. 29 deadline at county elections offices.

Sno-Isle Libraries is collaborating with League of Women
Voters groups in Snohomish and Island counties on six
candidate forums
, hosted at community libraries.  The library district maintains an elections page complete with
voter and ballot information, including descriptions of ballot measures.

League members are also at 10 community libraries on Sept. 25 for National Voter Registration Day. League members will be onsite with registration materials and help at these locations and times:
