All-Mail Voting for King County?
King County Executive Ron Sims has proposed an all-mail voting system for the county. He argues that it will streamline the election process, allow the staff to focus on a single system, and increase voter turnout.
I am all for that. However, I am someone that enjoys voting in person. I go up to the elementary school by my house, where I see my neighbors and get to gawk at all the cute kids. You vote in the library with the positive-message posters and tiny chairs. Best of all, if you go before school starts they have little “hosts” outside wearing darling sashes that will guide you to the polling area. So cute!
