State finds improperly transferred voter registration requests

OLYMPIA — State election officials have found that some 1,000 voter registration transactions were improperly transferred, the Secretary of State’s Office has announced.

The registrations are connected to the Washington Healthplanfinder, which provides clients an option to register to vote when they enroll in health and dental coverage, according to the press release issued Friday.

“Our office is working closely with staff at the Exchange and our county partners to contact voters potentially impacted by this situation,” Secretary of State Kim Wyman said the release.

“Our top priority is to ensure these individuals receive a ballot and have an opportunity to participate in the upcoming general election.”

Wyman urged voters to go to VoteWA.gov to verify their registrations are up-to-date and check the status of their ballots.

Voters should contact their county elections office with any questions related to their registration, she said.

Since same-day voter registration took effect in July, voters have the ability to register to vote and cast their ballot until 8 p.m. Election Day.
