How to vote

Thanks Bus Project. We lurv it.

Thanks Bus Project. We lurv it.

There’s a primary election coming up, and it’s super huge. On the ballot: City council, mayor, King County Executive, Port commission, school board – basically everybody who runs our lives. Big time.

Here are the basics, but if you have questions, let us know. And if you know somebody who needs help (we all know those folks), send them this link. Let’s do this!

How and when do I vote?
-You have to mail your ballot by August 18th, otherwise it won’t count. Make sure you stamp and sign it too!
-It’s a mail-in ballot, which means you should have received it at your house (or wherever you’re registered) already. If you haven’t seen your ballot, contact the Secretary of State to figure out why, and to make sure you can vote. The phone number to call is 1-800-448-4881.

Who do I vote for?
Well, that’s up to you, naturally, but here are some good resources to get a handle on this year’s races.
-The Stranger – endorsements here.
-The Seattle Times – endorsements here, King County exec videos here.
-Publicola – endorsements here.
-KUOW – audio coverage here.

Remember: Send in your ballot in by August 18th!

And huge props to our friends in Oregon at the Bus Project for their classic and enduring Vote F*cker logo. It’s gooood looking.

    I’m guessing you’re talking about how much postage to mail your ballot. If so, a regular 44 cent stamp will do the trick for ya. Good looks! Nothing worse than a bounced ballot.

    Buck a shot. That’s some goodness. I’m spreading the word.
