Protected records voter status.

An address confidentiality program participant who is eligible to vote may register to vote as a protected records voter.
(1) A program participant may apply for protected records voter status by appearing in person before the appropriate county authorized personnel or requesting a protected records voter registration application from the address confidentiality program. In order to register as a protected records voter, the applicant must be an address confidentiality program participant, provide their participant authorization number, and provide all of the information required for voter registration under RCW 29A.08.010 and 29A.08.107.
(2) The program participant shall disclose the actual address of her or his residence on the protected records voter application only for the purpose of determining the proper precinct, and taxing districts.

(a) If the voter registration applicant is not a program participant, the voter registration application may be processed in the same manner as all voter registration applications.
(b) If the information required by RCW 29A.08.010 and 29A.08.107 is not included, the county election office must seek the missing information, using the address confidentiality program substitute mailing address for communication to the protected records voter applicant.
(4) Upon receipt of a properly filled out form, the county election official shall:
(a) Cancel all previously existing voter registration records for the participant;
(b) Process the application as a protected records voter; and
(c) Provide the registrant with information related to voting participation as a protected records voter.
