On March 13, Seattle voters (well, all 5 of them who mail in ballots) will face two questions:
1. Tunnel: yea or nay
2. Rebuild: yea or nay
You can vote yes on one, both, or neither. The Times breaks down the possible results here. The most likely option seems to be no/no, which is what the folks at The Stranger have been hawking.
The second most likely option is no/yes, which would almost certainly bring the debate to an end and result in an elevated rebuild. Even the Mayor would have to concede that he’s lost this one. If you gamble on a referendum, you have to be willing to accept the results.
