Politics Not At This Address
Back when I first heard Stephanie Pure was running in the 43rd, I was bummedónow that I live in Portland, I wouldn’t be able to vote for her.
But maybe I was wrongódespite moving out of King County last November, and registering to vote in Multnomah County this past spring (March 16, to be exact), I got my King County ballot in the mail today, forwarded from Seattle.
I wondered if I’d screwed upómaybe I was supposed to tell King County to cancel my registration?
Nope: According to King County Elections’ site, if I move out of state, I must “re-register to vote in your new state. Once registered there, that state will notify King County to cancel your old registration.”
Not only did I re-register in another state six months ago, but I voted in the primary election here, back in May. So which county screwed up? Did Multnomah County fail to notify King County, or did King County not bother to clean up the voter rolls?
And what should I do with the ballot?
