Editorial: Get out and vote!


Primary Election Day is almost here, yet most folks who plan to vote have already done so.

Still, there are some people who put their ballots on a table or desk and forgot this coming Tuesday is the deadline to cast their ballot.

Ballots were mailed two weeks ago and must be received at the Election Center or postmarked no later than Tuesday.

Take the time and make the effort to vote.

Voting is a privilege and a civic duty. It is your opportunity to be heard as Walla Walla County begins the process of deciding who it wants as the county sheriff, auditor, coroner, District 3 commissioner, representative to Congress and state representative.

In the primary, the two candidates with the highest number of votes will move on to the November General Election.

Just fill out the ballot, put a stamp on it and pop it in the mail. Ballots have to be postmarked no later than Aug. 5.

Ballots can also be dropped off at the following locations — Election Center, 310 W. Poplar St., open until 8 p.m. on Election Day, or Auditor’s Office, 315 W. Main St., Room 201, open until 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Outside drop boxes are open until 8 p.m. on Tuesday. In Walla Walla they are located at Fifth Avenue and Poplar Street, Courthouse alley (Enter on Fifth Avenue) and the Walla Walla Fire Station at 170 N. Wilbur Ave. A box is also at College Place City Hall.

I urge the voters of College Place and Western Walla Walla County to listen to former County Commissioners Gregg Loney and Pam Ray and vote Jim Duncan for Walla Walla County Commissioner in this primary!
