I got a confirmation card in the mail. Why?

The National Voter Registration Act and Washington State Law both require counties to take steps to verify voter addresses.  

Confirmation cards are sent to voters to confirm their information if:

  • A piece of mail is returned by the postal service as undeliverable
  • A piece of mail is forwarded by the postal service to an address out of the county
  • A notice is received by the Elections Office from a state or federal agency, stating that the voter's address has changed
