...still a valid place to drop ballot? Yikes, I've been sick for a week and still have my stamped ballot here on my desk...maybe later to day I can run it up to the drop box...that is, if its still useable. anyone know?
Ballot Drop Box at Library(8 posts)
Yes, it's there, I dropped mine yesterday.
Yup! I dropped five off for me and my office mates.
Vote, people, vote! (The sooner this is over the sooner I'll stop getting angry hate calls from Gale)
FWIW, I got a call from the Democratic Party urging me to mail in my ballot and not use the dropbox. I think they meant on election day, because the boxes might fill to overflowing if we all use them. But still, I'm going to drop mine at the post office in the later afternoon.
And of course, don't give your ballot to any strangers who promise to deliver it for you! Apparently King County Republicans really are sending folks around gathering ballots as a "service." http://www.kingcounty.gov/elections.aspx
yeah - don't give your ballot to any "helpful" strangers.
Apparently, I guess, if you infer crooked crap to any party specifically, which is exactly why I expect this election to be settled in court, maybe by January '13.
I expect armed guards for the drop box, inferring some New Black Panther folks, not that this city would EVER take that crap sitting down, but your country did.
Actually, I expect everyone to vote, it's a responsibility and a right, which will be debated for several months, believe it or not.
Are any UN officials targeting our region? Nope, just shows blatant partisanism, imo.
As long as you can get your ballot in the box, I think you're fine. There are probably going to be observers there to report any shenanigans.
I think both major parties will have the modern version of "get out the vote" which is gathering ballots from shut-ins and the like. I see nothing nefarious about it, thought the squeamish might want to contact the party their voting aligns with if they need a ballot picked up. My (albeit limited) experience with these sorts of things is that the volunteers are pretty fierce patriots and feel strongly that every vote should be counted regardless of who it is for.
I handed mine to uniformed letter carrier. This was the day after I (and most everyone else)received it. He was really happy and excited to take our ballots, telling us he'd been picking a lot of them already that day. Still, I was not completely trusting, so I checked on-line. It got there.
At least 44% of the King County ballots mailed have already been returned and verified. If you'd like to check the status of your ballot you can check here: http://info.kingcounty.gov/elections/ballottracker.aspx
