I moved to King County, Washington State 6 weeks ago and got my drivers license and then registered to vote with online registration.
I was expecting to receive a Voter Registration card in the mail. But now I read the information on Elections & Voting and it looks like maybe I don't get a card? I logged in to the system and see that my "Voter Status" is "active". Is that all? no Voter Registration Card? The instructions just say to bring my Drivers License to the voter booth on election day.
I am a little disappointed. Actually I wanted the voter registration card as proof that I am a resident here now and not my last state.
Do any others have a Washington State Voter Registration Card?
or is there no card in Washington?
Thanks,
Drew

"Never" is, I think, somewhat longer than six weeks, no? Yes, we do have voter registration cards. Either give the system some time to work it through, or tomorrow phone the King County Elections Board and ask for their assistance. They're wonderfully helpful over the phone.

A driver's license is much more accepted as proof of residence by all public persons than a voter registration card. Much much more.

King County still sends them out; I just received an updated one/confirmation card last week. No address change info on my part, maybe some odd district changed for me.

I received an updated card too last week. Probably reallocation of something or other....

The OP should let the system work, or phone.

Just got my card today.
My initial confusion was because, when I registered online, I used my Driver's License as proof of residence. Then it seemed like they were telling me that my Driver's License is now my voter's Registration, or something like that. Anyway, I was confused about nothing. Got my card in the mail today.
Thanks, Drew

When I moved here last year, I went to the Board of Elections in Renton and received a voter registration card on the spot, since I knew what ID to bring.
