“The Thurston County Auditor’s Office will begin providing passport services in October. The Auditor’s Office will become the only passport services agency in Thurston County open five days a week for full business hours.
“‘We saw a need for new passport services providers in the County given upcoming changes to state law on REAL ID and the significant increase in passport applications over the last few years,’ said Thurston County Auditor Mary Hall. Over the last five years, the number of passports issued in Washington State has increased by 51%.”
“The Auditor’s Office will announce the first day of passport services when a completion date for office renovations associated with the new services is finalized. For more information about passport services, please visit the Auditor’s Office Passports webpage.
