The Stranger Election Control Board Tells You How to Vote

posted by on October 15 at 14:59 PM

Two ways: Complete, full-text endorsements (for elitists who like to read), and a handy cheat sheet (for middle-class Americans working two jobs to make ends meet).

This election isn’t just about Obama. Sure, it’s PRIMARILY about Obama—there he is, after all, almost at the very top of your ballot (and front-and-center in our endorsements)—but trust the SECB when we say you need to fill out the whole damn thing. Yes, that includes the eight county charter amendments, which is where our cheat sheet comes in handy. From mass transit (yay!) to Tim Eyman’s traffic-worsening Initiative 985, to levies for parks and Pike Place Market, this year’s ballot is crammed with measures and candidates well worth learning about.

Or you can just print out the cheat sheet. The SECB doesn’t judge.

Thanks for all your hard work, gang. I really appreciate all the effort you put into your endorsements.

Dear SECB:

Please ask your BFF Reuven Carlyle why he took a campaign contribution from scumbag Glacier Northwest lobbyist Jamie Durkan, and if he intends to give it back.

Other Democrats in Seattle who took contributions from Durkan are:

Scott White -- donated it to an environmentalist group.

Zack Hudgins -- Opposes the Glacier mine, supports Goldmark.

Margarita Prentice -- Opposes the Glacier mine, supports Goldmark.

Why don't you just tell everyone to vote for the Democratic Party like they should, and pimp Randy Dorn and the SI's? It will save you some print. Oh, but you don't actually care about the environment, now do you? I've seen five trillion copies of The Stranger from Seattle to Bellevue all over the streets.

Um... isn't newspaper biodegradable?

I'm sorry, but this analogy is not very pleasant to read no matter what your political dispositions are:

Barack Obama is awesomeŚwe mean it. We're so fired up about this election that we'd just about eat the corn out of this man's shit right now.

But at least The Stranger provides the Kool-Aid for the gullible to help wash those corns down.

Marcia! Marcia! Marcia! Thank you sooooo much! as a gay man with AIDS that uses medical marijuana! I can tell you that our best bet for Lt Governor is Marcia McCraw even though she is a republican(only when it comes to money) she is very liberal... i have spoken with her at length she is for gay rights, women right to choose, and for medical marijuana patients rights!!!! theses are not the values Brad Owen has, and he has a proven track record of being more conservative than any republican out there!...please take a look at her! she has my vote.

@6, Republican Jews make me really nervous. That said, Marcia is smart as a whip, extremely rational, and adorable (weird obsession with dalmations excluded). And she can wear yellow without looking like ass.
