CLARKSTON, WA - In continuing coverage, Secretary of State John Wiesman said the State of Washington is one of the few states with a fairly good success rate for people buying health insurance.

According to reports based on the Washington Health Insurance Exchange website, as of November, a little more than 180,000 accounts were created with almost five-million page views on the site. In Asotin County 33% are currently enrolled through the system. Wiesman credits the website for the enrollment numbers.

"With our website we made a really key decision to allow people to go on and shop without having to put in all of their information, which really decreased the stress on the system," said Wiesman.

The deadline for signing up in Washington has been extended. If people sign up before the 23rd of December, they'll have until January 1, 2014 to get insurance.
