Remember to Vote!!

Today is the big day! As of last night (5:00 PM November 1) 55,583 ballots (48%) have been returned. The new drive-in ballot box for Whatcom County is in the (south Courthouse Parking Lot next to the LightCatcher Cafe/Whatcom Museum. The new drop box has a Grand Ave entrance. There will be ballot drop boxes all around the county. "Your ballot needs to be postmarked no later than Election Day or deposited at a drop site below." All  these locations can be dropped into  except for the WWU site:
  • Blaine City Hall 344 H St., Blaine, WA
  • Deming Library 5044 Mt. Baker Hwy., Deming, WA
  • Everson Library 104 Kirsch Dr., Everson, WA
  • Ferndale Library 2222 Main St., Ferndale, WA
  • Laurel Fire Station 6028 Guide Meridian, Bellingham, WA
  • Lynden Library 216 4th St., Lynden, WA
  • Western Washington University 515 High Street, Rm 714 Viking Union, Bellingham, WA
This election will be big news all over the country.  The San Francisco Giants did us a big favor by taking the World Series in five games. World Series Party Tonight? Election Tomorrow?  S.F. Mayor Gavin Newsom should give the entire city the day off...The morning to recover from their hangovers and the evening to vote... But back to Bellingham...Here in Whatcom County, rain should mostly pass by leaving us not too cold and somewhat clear for Election Day. I would imagine turnout will be substantial and that the vote counting will go on for at least seven days or longer. Don't be a goat, VOTE!!!
