I’m a bit of an elections nut (I worked as a spokeswoman for the Elections Department for many years) so I love Election Day and I love educating voters on the process. Now, it’s your turn. In Washington, we don’t have polling places. Instead, we vote entirely by mail. We received our ballots three weeks ago and after reading all of the mailers, the voter pamphlets and the endorsements, we voted.
If you haven’t voted yet, make sure you return your ballot TODAY! Ballots need to be dropped off in a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. You can also return your ballot via the USPS, and it must be postmarked with today’s date.
For all you King County voters, here are some useful links for you:
- General election information
- Voter pamphlet
- Video voter guide (hear from the candidates themselves!)
- Ballot drop box
- Track your ballot
- Check election results (posted today at 8:15 p.m. and daily at 4:30 p.m.)
Here I was this morning sign waving for a candidate that I’m endorsing for Mercer Island City Council. Go Rich! This was my first time working on the campaign side of things and I really enjoyed it! What do you think of our “Waving Rich” cutout? They’ve been all over Megan’s Island!
