OK, its pretty brief up here on Grubbstreet, so let me set things down for you.
Get your ballots in by 7 August. But do it now. Avoid the rush.
You'd have to pay for postage. Drop it in the mail. That simple. Or you can do a drop-box in King County..
But just vote, dammit.
King County Proposition No. 1 Regular Property Tax Levy Automated Fingerprint Identification System Services - Approved, I guess.
United States Senator - Maria Cantwell, better than all 28 other options.
United States Representative District 9 - Sarah Smith (though that other Smith is OK). And hey, she did an AMA on Reddit.
State Legislature District No. 11, positions 1 and 2 - Zack Hudgins and Steve Berquist - so good at their jobs that no one wants to run against them.
And here are a few that I'm not voting on Usually I don't poach on other areas, but these merit some attention.
State Legislature District No. 44 - Steve Hobbs. Impressive. Did I mention he's part of a gaming tabletop podcast, the Geeks of Cascadia?
US Representative District No. 8 - Not Dino Rossi. This blog cut its teeth on he disastrous run for governor and resulting lawsuit. There are three good Dems running against him, and it would be great if Rossi didn't even make the cut. Check out Jason Riettereiser, Kim Schrier, and Shannon Hader. I lean towards Hader, but I'm not voting in this one. And it would hilarious if Rossi didn't even get out of the Primary.
We will tune in after the election for the final count.
