Despite the very vocal opposition of many citizens to the move to all Vote By Mail elections in King County, WA, the plan is in place to conduct the first forced all-mail election (well at least we are told there’s a plan). Just remember, it’s the King County Democrats that are leading the charge. It was also the King County Dems lead by Ron Sims that brought in Diebold machines in the first place. All four County Republicans have been continuously opposed. Here’s the article on the upcoming debacle in the Seattle Times.
Bob Ferguson, the only Democrat on the Council who has shown any concern at all, is once again cited as “concerned”. But my personal experience with Bob makes me feel like he’s just interested in Ron’s job, and will be challenging Larry Phillips for the position come 2009, so I have trouble believing he will do anything to stop this trainwreck from moving forward. Please Bob prove me wrong.
County Councilman Bob Ferguson, D-Seattle, wants the county to open more drop-off locations and he’s worried that there is not enough time to educate voters.
“People are receiving ballots who have never received absentee ballots,” he said at a council briefing Monday. “These are people who have been voting at polls 20, 30, 40, 50 years.”
Well Bob, you could have sided with the 4 votes against this follow last fall. But you didn’t. Too little, too late.
