Clallam group members seek to get out the vote

Voter registration forms are coming to a store near you.

Members of the League of Women Voters of Clallam County will be at the Sequim Walmart Supercenter from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. Saturday. The store is at 1110 W. Washington St.

League members will be at the Port Angeles Walmart Supercenter at 3411 E. Kolonels Way from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday to assist voters who want to register or update their registration if they have moved.

The action is to mark National Voter Registration Day, a nationwide, nonpartisan effort to register hundreds of thousands of voters, on Tuesday.

“Every year, millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register,” said Linda Benson, president of the Clallam County League of Women Voters.

“National Voter Registration Day seeks to help eligible voters across the country participate in our democratic process. We want to make sure everybody who wants the opportunity to vote on Nov. 7 has their registration up-to-date.”

Those who cannot make the event can register or update their addresses and names online through Oct. 9 at with a current Washington state driver’s license or ID card.

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan organization, is one of the nation’s largest and most longstanding community-based voter registration groups. Learn more about the work of the League of Women Voters Clallam County at
