By the time an immigrant has gone through the entire process of naturalization to gain citizenship and the right to vote, they should be able to speak and read English, the language of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
Why then, does the Washington State Secretary of State Voter Registration website provide for so many non-English speakers?
All that is required to register to vote online is to provide your state-issued Drivers License or Washington ID number and click the boxes to affirm you meet the criteria to register to vote.
Washington State also has long had a policy of providing Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens who only have to pay the fee, take the test and document their residency with a utility bill.
Most counties in Washington State are “vote by mail”. We have no polling places. The ballots are received in the mail about 10 days before the election. Voters must sign the back of the return envelope and mail them on or before election day.
