Couldn’t find a pencil? Efforts are underway in New York and New Jersey after superstorm Sandy to make sure voters are not disenfranchised as cleanup continues. Generators are being set up at polling places, and shuttle buses are being organized.

And rolls of stickers are being printed to be handed to those who lived through the storm and continue to deal with hardships. The stickers read, “I Voted. What the #%&@ Is Your Excuse.[”]

These are not the sewer bids you’re looking for: Having amassed $1.7 million in fees from cable TV subscribers, the city of Everett plans to spend about $400,000 to upgrade the equipment used to record and broadcast programming for its government-access channel, Everett TV.

But maybe the city ought to spend a little on content to pump up the council meetings and interviews with the mayor. We understand “Star Wars” creator George Lucas is looking for a new gig after selling his studio to Disney.

Well, what do you nose? The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency is seeking volunteers to sniff for odors in Marysville and north Everett as it investigates complaints around the Snohomish River delta.

Volunteers should be non-smokers, with an average sense of smell and should not own old dogs with digestive problems.
