Don’t Miss the Voting Extravaganza, July 27 & 28!

July 20, 2015

Screen Shot 2015-07-17 at 3.23.28 PMPrimary ballots are here! If you’re a registered voter, you should have gotten yours in the mail already. Now, you just have to remember to cast your vote (take a look at TRU’s endorsements!) and get your ballot in the mail or to a dropbox by August 4.

But why vote alone when you can join in TRU’s two-night Voting Extravaganza?? Bring yourself & your ballot, schmooze with the candidates, enjoy drink specials, and hear some comedy from stand-up comedian and local political commentator Brett Hamil (check out his take on the Dist. 3 race here!).

Plus, stamps are expensive these days. We’ll have a box for ballots if you want us to take yours to the dropbox for you, and some stamps if you prefer to put it in the mail yourself. So come, bring your friends, and above all don’t forget to vote!!  Details above and below, you can RSVP on Facebook.

TRU Voting Extravaganza Day #1
Monday, July 27, 7:00 PM – close
@ Neighbor Lady Bar, 2308 E. Union St.

TRU Voting Extravaganza Day #2
Tuesday, July 28, 7:00 – 10:00 PM
@ Vermillion Bar, 1508 11th Ave

One more note on why voting by August 4 is so important. Turnout in primary elections tends to be very low, especially in odd years – as low as 25% of registered voters have actually voted in primaries in King County in recent years. A few of these primary races could come down to extremely thin margins. Your vote really counts!!!

    I saw a posting today recommending candidates. Hey folks, how can anybody support the current METRO transit. Until a MAJOR revamp of METRO management I, for one, cannot in clear conscience recommend any monies for that organization. They’ve proven themselves to be poor stewards of public funds. In fact, such poor stewards a regular rider would cut them off at the hip pockets. Why you ask, first have you been on the “new” trolleys. The ones with less legroom than a yellow school bus. Who are they hoping to put in those seats. I for one cannot sit in any seat other than the handicap area. Who thought that a good idea, these trolleys are grossly unsafe. Second, the METRO organization has three or four supervisors for every worker. Until both of those issues are corrected, I for one will NOT give them any more money to waste, and will vote against any candidate who supports that mis-management and total waste of public funds. Let’s be real here.
