Unless you’re really into the arcana of American politics, you may not have realized that today is Election Day.
We didn’t do formal endorsements this year, but I explained why Seattle voters should approve Prop. 1. Furthermore, Seattle Subway did their homework and released endorsements informed by very similar principles to what I would have used as a member of the Editorial Board.
Beyond Prop 1, virtually the entire state government is up for grabs. Olympia has vast power over land use and transit outcomes in Seattle and everywhere else in Washington. I hear there are some federal races too.
It is not a good idea to use the US Postal Service this late in the process. Instead, find your nearest drop box and insert your ballot no later than 8pm tonight.
Or, if you need more assistance, managed not to register to vote, or are just old-fashioned, don a mask and register and/or vote in person.
Finally, if like most eligible people you’ve already voted, please track your ballot today so that you have time to rectify any problem that arose.
