Today on the Inland Journal podcast, just one week out from the November 5 general election, we learn more about changes made this year to Washington’s voting system. They were mandated by the legislature as a way to make the state system more secure. The changes move the state from 39 individual county election systems to one overseen by the state.

A few days ago, Washington’s top election official, Secretary of State Kim Wyman, stopped by our studio to talk about the changes.

The general election is November 5. If you don’t yet have your ballot or need to report an address change, call or visit your county elections office. You can register to vote every day until then and still cast a ballot.
