I VOTED!!!! In person too. At first I was afraid that was an impossibility in Washington when I looked online and it said that Washington is a “mail in only state”. What? Huh? I mean I know there are a bunch of techies here but I like the physical act of voting. But alas, the one and only polling place is next door in the fancy and beautiful Union Station and I got in and out kick.
Not only is there the presidential election (of which my vote probably will not matter in WA) but other priorities like a very tight governor election between Inslee (D) and McKenna (R) and three very important proposals:
- Legalizing gay marriage (we could very well be the first state to pass this by public vote)
- Legalize all uses of marijuana (again, this could be a first)
- Impose a tax to rebuild our seawall as it is old and deteriorating and could be a threat to the city
See a summary of our election here.
We will see how the results turn out!!!!
