(Nov. 5, 2013) — It’s Election Day so, um… VOTE!

Voter receiving ballot through mailSecretary of State Kim Wyman’s office predicts that barely more than half of Washington’s voters will bother participating the this year’s election. And some areas of the state are hoping a mere 40% of registered voters cast their ballots.

That means your vote will count even more as races and ballot measures are decided by small percentage of registered voters. So find that ballot, fill it out and turn it in!

Visit the state’s MyVote page to find your nearest ballot drop box, where it must be delivered by 8 p.m. TODAY.  You can also mail it in, but it must be postmarked today to be counted.
