It’s Election Day – the voting ends tonight and the vote-counting begins. We found three candidates signwaving in the fog around 8 am at the 35th/Fauntleroy entrance to the West Seattle Bridge. West to east:
VOTING DEADLINE: 8 pm tonight if you’re using a King County Elections dropbox; earlier if you’re using postal mail – you need to be sure your ballot gets postmarked with today’s date. No stamp necessary. If you need voting assistance, the county vote centers are open until 8 pm.
ELECTION RESULTS: As usual, there will be one set of results released, expected somewhere in the 8:05-8:15 pm vicinity. After that, weekday afternoon updates until everything’s counted.
ELECTION NIGHT PARTIES: So far we know of three – same three candidates we found out signwaving – Herbold at Great American Diner/Bar (4752 California SW), Tavel at Talarico’s (4728 California SW), McDermott at Pizzeria 22 (4213 SW College). Any others? email@example.com – thank you!
Other highlights after this #TurkeyTuesday photo of The West Seattle Turkey, now in our area for 6_ months:
The photo is from Lauren, who explains, “Realized I haven’t seen any turkey photos on the blog lately. Probably because the turkey spends about 1/2 her time in my backyard. She is kind of like that friend your teenager has: they’re over all the time, eats all your food – and you’re kind of annoyed by it, but you know they don’t have a great home life, so you just roll with it, and now they’re an honorary member of your family. That’s the West Seattle Turkey for us.” Now, on to the non-election highlights:
