Seattle Times endorsements for Nov. 6, 2012 election. You still have time to vote
The deadline to vote is 8 p.m. Tuesday. That's how long the ballot drop-off boxes for King County Elections will be open. You also still have time to drop off your ballot at the U.S. Postal Service as long as it is postmarked by Tuesday.
Wondering how to vote? Here are The Seattle Times endorsements for the Nov. 6, 2012 election. We have interviewed about 170 candidates and researched most of the ballot measures to put these endorsements together.
Wondering why you should vote? Read our Tuesday editorial, "Not too late to vote, make your voice heard." Here is an excerpt:
Washingtonians don't have to think too far back to understand the value of every vote. In the 2004 gubernatorial race, it took two recounts to determine Democrat Chris Gregoire had beaten Republican Dino Rossi by a mere 133 ballots out of 2.8 million ballots cast.
Wondering if you can go to the polls today and vote? Sorry, you are out of luck. We are a vote by mail state. If you registered to vote by Oct. 29, you should have received a ballot in the mail.
What if you're registered to vote but you didn't receive a ballot? King County Elections offers a ballot-marking program.
Have you voted already? Get a copy of Tuesday's Seattle Times newspaper and get an "I voted" sticker on the front page. Then share your photo with the news side. Here are instructions.
