  1. For any registered voter who hasn’t received their ballot, there also is this online link that allows registered voters to obtain their ballots electronically:

    Using the online program, you can mark your ballot online, print it out along with the signature page (don’t forget to sign and date the declaration page!) then return it via mail or drop it off at one of the boxes, vans or accessible voting centers listed above by 8pm on 11/3.

  2. Oh good I have another 6 days.

    I always wait until the last minute, hoping for last-minute drama and scandal. I’m almost always disappointed.

  3. Thanks to the board for all the work they did on getting these endorsements together. I voted today, so if there is a last minute scandal and Tim Burgess is actually revealed to be advocating for a suburban-style Wal-Mart next to Seattle Center, I guess I screwed up.
