With the Aug. 5 primary election fast approaching, I am encouraging everyone who meets the qualifications to vote in Washington state elections to do so. In speaking with people about the upcoming election I get the feeling that they have the idea that their vote won’t count.
Your readers can get information about candidates from many forums. In my opinion, there needs to be more education given to people on how their tax dollars work and what government agencies can be of assistance to meet their needs. Many of the budget problems that our cities face are due to misguided voting.
I also wish to remind readers that once someone is voted into a government position, they represent all the people in their district.
