Posted in PoliticsTagged ,

There are now more than 44-thousand registered voters in Chelan County. That number is up more than a thousand since the primary election back in August. Chelan County Auditor Skip Moore says the stream of registration forms into his office has been steady, but he has no explanation for it:

In order to be eligible to vote, you must be over 18 years old at the time of the election; be a U.S. Citizen and a legal resident of Washington State; and have established your voting residency address at least 30 days prior to Election Day; not be disqualified from voting due to a court order; and not under Department of Corrections supervision for a Washington felony conviction.
