The Washington Secretary of State’s Office says that they have identified roughly 1,000 improperly transferred voter registration requests.
In a release, the office states that during recent routine audits, state election officials identified roughly 1,000 voter registration transactions were improperly transferred.
According to the release, these registrations were connected to the Washington Healthplanfinder, which provides clients an option to register to vote when they enroll in health and dental coverage.
Secretary of State Kim Wyman released the following statement:
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 if they find that their voter information does not match their current location.
To find drop box locations throughout the state, voters can visit VoteWA.gov.
