​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).

Registered voters may challenge the registration of another voter by following the voter registration challenge process. You can learn more about the voter registration challenge process by visiting the Secretary of State's website.

State law requires Thurston County Elections to hold hearings to determine the validity of challenged voter registrations. Voter registration challenge hearings are administrative proceedings, not a court proceeding and not a criminal action.
