One week until Election Day. So we start our daily preview with …
VOTING: As of last night, 55 percent of Seattle voters had turned in their ballots. King County Elections is hoping for 90 percent turnout. Imagine how cool it would be if those all got in early enough to be part of the Election Night results! You have your choice of three West Seattle drop boxes (and one each in White Center and South Park), all listed/mapped here, If you’re going to use USPS, don’t wait much longer, just in case. If you’ve already sent in/dropped off your ballot, check here to ensure it was received
PARK NAMES: The new crowdsourced names for the Port of Seattle‘s Duwamish River parks will be announced around 12:30 pm during the Port Commission meeting – here’s how to watch. (P.S. If you don’t want to be surprised or don’t have time to watch – looks like the new names are revealed in this meeting-agenda document.)
