OLYMPIA, WA – Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall reminds vessel owners that all vessel registrations expire each year on June 30, and the state Department of Licensing no longer mails registration renewal notices. Vessel owners are encouraged to renew online at dol.wa.gov to avoid the hassle of wait times and lines at licensing offices.
"You don't need to wait to renew your vessel license. I encourage people to renew as early as possible if they are doing it in-person," says Hall.
Vessel owners can also renew in person at the Thurston County Auditor's Office located in Olympia at 2000 Lakeridge Drive SW in Building 1, Room 106. Owners will need their vessel's registration (WN) number. The Thurston County Auditor's Office is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information about vessel registration at the Auditor's Office, call (360) 786-5406 or go to www.co.thurston.wa.us/auditor
and click on the "Licensing" tab.
Thurston County also has subagents who can process vessel registration renewals at eight convenient locations throughout the county. For information about subagent hours and locations go to the state Department of Licensing website at dol.wa.gov
