Did you get your ballot in the mail? It might seem like a very minor thing, but the one item – election of a Director of Elections – is a critical choice. In November, the voters of King County decided that this would be an elected position so if you care about the integrity of your vote in the future this is the time to choose the best, fairest, and most experienced professional.

Chime in about who you think would be best.
Make a point of putting that ballot in the mail as soon as possible. How about before we celebrate the inauguration of our new president, whose election victory came about because of hard work by the countless folks involved in making sure that people who could vote were registered and able to vote, and that every vote was counted properly.
PS If, like me, you HATE mail in and want to be able to go to the polls, please direct your ire at the King County Council. It’s not a decision of Director of Elections. That person is charged with making sure that elections are conducted accurately.
