King County & Seattle – VOTE TODAY

native-vote-button-small
King County and Seattle residents — DON’T FORGET TO MAIL IN YOUR BALLOTS TODAY!  Today is the Special Election to choose King County’s Director of Elections.   The Director’s position used to be appointed, but because of a ballot measure in 2008, the Director is now an elected position.
This is an important position, because the Elections Director has to know what they are doing since a screw up could cost the voters and candidates time and money if there has to be a recount or the election goes to the courts.  Information from King County is here.
The Seattle PI, Seattle Times, and the Seattle Stranger have all endorsed Sherril Huff who happens to be the current Elections Director after she was appointed two years ago by King County Executive Ron Sims.
