As long as we’re flagellating ourselves, let’s get our numbers correct.
Heckuva job Seattle! Because you were too stoned to go vote (only about 26% of you did), the right wing kicked ass in this week’s election and Washington State will be the worse for it.
It’s nothing to get excited about, but it currently looks like about 27% of King County’s registered voters turned in a ballot. And counting.
Notably, 45.61% of people who vote absentee turned a ballot in. Looks like there’s something to be said for voting in bars (or stoned at home) after all.
UPDATE: It’s now 29%. Woo hoo.
