July 8th is the primary registration online or mail-in deadline!

If you are a new voter, you have until July 8th to register to vote online or by mail. Here is a chart from the Secretary of State for WA:

To update your registration (for example if you have moved) look at candidates and ballots, and peruse your voting record, go to My Vote Washington. This is always a good idea, since your voter information is only protected by your name and birth date in WA State. Only a limited number of candidates will be on the primary ballot.  I noticed that the downtown voter drop box was not listed as a drive through box for the primary. I am wondering if this is true...
