An event sponsored by the Snohomish County League of Women Voters along with Sno-Isle Libraries, the Everett Public Library and the American Association of University Women is scheduled for Tuesday at area libraries. Times and locations are available on the League of Women Voters website at www.lwvsnoho.org.

Elections officials remind voters that they can update their existing registration or register to vote online at www.myvote.wa.gov.
