ELECTION 2020: Your primary ballot’s in the mail

checkbox.jpgIf you’re registered to vote, you’ll get a ballot within the next few days – King County Elections has just mailed the ballots for the August 4th primary election. No local ballot measures; among candidates, our area’s State House representatives, Eileen Cody and Joe Fitzgibbon, are both running for re-election unopposed. Our area’s U.S. House Rep. Pramila Jayapal has four primary opponents. The ballot also includes statewide offices – at the top of the ballot, Gov. Jay Inslee has 35 primary opponents. As usual, you’ll be able to either mail in your ballot or use an official drop box (the nearest ones are in The Junction, High Point, White Center, and South Park). And if you’re not yet registered to vote – go here!

    GXNX – I’m sorry but Russia has already agreed to change all republican votes to democrat votes this time around.  So ironically you are correct, time for a change!

    I’m with ya, but the reality is there is a better chance of a Shetland Pony winning the Kentucky Derby than a republican winning anything around here. Voting has consequences. For example, anybody that voted for Herbold has no right to complain about the defunding debacle going on. Progressive Democrats have convinced too many people they are victims of something and someone else is to blame and owes them. I threw in the towel on this town a couple years ago, and hope I can ride the next 2 years out before I’m off to Arizona.

    I’m not Republican, but I don’t disagree with this analysis.  When you have one-party rule, the only way that candidates can differentiate themselves from one another is to become ever more extreme, as we’ve seen played out in Seattle.   Our system needs balance to function.  A step in the right direction would be to reverse the ‘top two’ candidate system.  I’m ashamed to admit I voted for it long ago, but I didn’t realize it would play out like this.
