Sure, unlike last year, there are no Seattle City Council races tearing apart the city's left, no bootlickers to kick off the port commission, no mayoral elections to fuck up vote in. But you should still make sure you're registered to vote for the upcoming August 7 primary.

This year's primary includes a whole bunch of state legislative races. Democrats are hoping they can take the "blue wave" local and expand their majorities in Olympia. There's also the chance to vote against former state GOP chair Susan Hutchison and Patriot Prayer dickhead Joey Gibson in the race for U.S. Senate. And, depending on where you live, there may be a U.S. House primary too. (For fuck's sake, if you live in the 8th, please register and vote.)

Things will get more exciting in November, when you're likely to vote on a carbon fee, gun safety measure, and the first contested race for King County prosecutor since before Obama was president.

All this means you should get your shit together now. July 9—that's Monday—is the last day to register to vote online. If you miss that, you'll have to register in person at a King County Elections office in Renton or downtown Seattle.

To register online, you'll need a current Washington State driver license or ID card. If you don't have an ID, use this form to register by mail or go down to one of these offices.

If you miss the July 9 deadline to register online, the in-person registration deadline is July 30.
