So you've sat (well, scrolled), through my tour of the Voters' Guide (no, I'm not going to do it again for the general election). And the Stranger, Seattle Times, and Publicola have all made their endorsements (though the Times is not summarizing online. Thanks, guys). So here are the recommendations of the blog (positions with one candidate have no endorsement).
United States Senator: Patty Murray
United States Representative Congressional District No. 8: Caleb Love Mardini (OK, I'm a sucker for a good position statement).
Legislative District No. 47 State Senator Claudia Kauffman
Legislative District No. 47 Representative Position No. 1: No endorsement (choose which irritates you more: the incumbent's messy personal life or the GOP's sleazy attempts to capitalize on it).
Legislative District No. 47 Representative Position No. 2: Pat Sullivan
State Supreme Court, Judicial Position No. 1: Stan Rumbaugh
State Supreme Court, Judicial Position No. 6: Charles Wiggins (remember, if a court candidate gets 50%+ of the vote, they win right there. Yeah, it sounds strange and mildly unfair, but that's the nature of our elections right now).
So, the ballots are due in on the 17th, but do yourself a favor, go over to the pile of mail you've been meaning to sort through, dig out the ballot, and Vote, already.
