Reminder: ballots are due tomorrow for primary elections

Election day for primaries vis upon us tomorrow, which mean it’s time to dig out your ballot if you haven’t done so already.

There are 13 candidates running for Mike O’Brien’s District 6 seat — more than any other district in the city.

If you’re looking for some guidance, the Seattle Times has a go-to list of where each candidate stands on prominent issues, such as taxes, homelessness, development, police presence, and even the alignment of the Burke-Gilman Trail.

If you’re mailing your ballot, it must be postmarked on or before election day (August 6th) and received by your county elections office no later than three days after election day.

You can also drop off your ballot in person at any drop box by 8pm (here’s a map of drop boxes throughout the city). Ballard’s main drop box is at the Ballard Library, on the corner of NW 57th St and 22nd Ave NW.

That girl is clearly too young to vote, this is the issue with vote by mail, it’s rife with fraud.

In Chicago you can die and still vote, 4 times. I bet she’s a Russian agent.

Of all the D6 candidates, my top two candidates are Strauss and Sergio. I was initially drawn to the two of them because they could succinctly express their ideas and both seemed like reasonable humans I could get behind.

I like Sergio’s straight-forward approach particularly concerning public safety and the homeless. This is naturally his expertise coming from his police experience. He was the first candidate to stand out to me.

However I align more with Strauss on housing and transportation issues. A quick scroll through Strauss’ website will show that he has a lot more to say on a lot more issues than Sergio. I think Strauss will be more effective in the position as a policy-maker on the wide variety of issues affecting D6. While Strauss’s mustache is notably lacking compared to Sergio’s, Dan Strauss gets my vote!
