County election management system—Applications for voter registration.

(1) Each auditor must enter and maintain voter registration records in the official statewide voter registration database by using a county election management system. Each record must contain at least the following information from the voter registration application in a format compatible with the official statewide voter registration database:
(a) Name;
(b) Complete residential address;
(c) Complete mailing address;
(d) County registration number;
(e) State registration number;
(f) Gender;
(g) Date of birth;
(h) Date of registration;
(i) Applicable district and precinct codes;
(j) Elections in which the individual has voted, if available;
(k) Washington state driver license number, Washington state identification card number, and/or the last four digits of the applicant's Social Security number; and
(l) A scanned image file (format .tiff) of the applicant's signature.
(2) In the case of an applicant who provides a copy of one of the alternative forms of identification listed in RCW 29A.08.107 for registration purposes, the auditor must either maintain a scanned image of the identifying document or make a notation in the registration record indicating which alternative form of identification was provided to the auditor. Pursuant to RCW 29A.08.710, a scanned image of the identification is not available for public inspection or copying.
(3)(a) If a voter registration application is incomplete, the county auditor may use other government resources and public records to confirm the missing information, except if the missing information is the applicant's signature or confirmation of United States citizenship. The county auditor may also attempt to contact the applicant by phone, email or other means to obtain identification information.
(b) If, after these attempts, the county auditor is still unable to obtain the incomplete information, the county auditor must send the applicant a verification notice as defined by RCW 29A.08.030.
(4) Upon entry of an applicant's information, the auditor must check for duplicate entries.
(5) Each auditor must have a quality assurance program to maintain accurate data entry into the statewide voter registration database.
