Seattle paved the way for Inslee
City’s domination discourages voters
It is unfortunate that, according to “Blue Seattle, the kingmaker” [NWMonday, Dec. 3], a city (Seattle) can control the outcome of an election in this state. If I recall correctly, the results of the same-sex marriage bill, Referendum 74, were also driven by King County and the city of Seattle.
It would appear to me that when voters are voting on statewide issues like these two, there be some sort of a state Electoral College approach so that the votes from each county receives a fair shake in the overall vote tally.
I’m sure there are a lot of voters in the other 38 counties that at times, say, “What’s the use. My vote doesn’t matter.”
