The King County Board of Elections needs to get a better system for switching voter registration. When we moved to Snoqualmie in mid-October, it didn't occur to us to change our voter registration until it was too late for a special February election. It was a shame too, because there was an important school levy that failed to pass by (supposedly) one vote. That vote could have been cast by me or Jeff, but we were slackers.
Knowing that the levy was going to be put back on the ballot in an April election, Jeff printed out some forms from the King County website that would update our driver's license info and (if requested) would update our voter registration info. The forms get mailed to the DMV and they handle everything from there. At least that's what's supposed to happen.
Last week Jeff received a notification in the mail indicating that his voter registration had been changed. He then received his mail-in ballot for the April election a few days later. I still hadn't received anything. This morning I went onto the King County website and looked up my registration information - and it's still showing our old address and district voting info. I call up the voter line, and find out that the DMV updated my address info in their system but failed to forward the information to the elections board so I can't vote on the school levy again. Just frustrates me to no end.
