Voter registration challenges
State law requires that a voter's residential address for voter registration purposes be the voter's permanent, physical address (RCW 29A.04.151 and RCW 29A.08.010). King County Elections is required by law to hold hearings to determine the validity of voter registrations that have been challenged. This is an administrative hearing, not a court proceding and not a criminal action.
There are currently no voter registration challenges.
