A slew of King County Election Ballots hit the postal system Wednesday. By Thursday and Friday the green and white envelopes marked "official ballot" began filtering into the mailboxes of Renton voters.
While this is a primary election with dozens of boxes to check, there truly seems to be only one box concerning a number of Rentonites. You'll find it on the back page under the the "City" heading: Proposition No. 1, Vote to Select a Library Site Downtown.
After months of meetings, petition signing and campaign strategy meetings, Renton will know where its library will rest after these ballots hit their final destination on August 7.
For all past coverage of the downtown Renton library — including recording of the League of Women Voters July 18 forum, letters to the editor, and more — visit: http://renton.patch.com/topics/downtown-renton-library
For more information about the candidates, initiatives and propositions on your ballot, consult the orange-colored King County Official Voters' Pamphlet that arrived in your mail, or click here for the online edition.
The League of Women Voters also offers a terrific service, vote411.org, where voters can enter their address to get a customized sample ballot. Better yet, this nationally funded project allows users to interact with the site and make notes on the sample ballot for later reference.
Happy voting, Renton!
