A Matter Of Opinion

Mon., Aug. 17, 2009, 8:33 a.m.

Changing world of elections

Tomorrow is primary election day in Washington, and our editorial will encourage those who haven't yet voted to be sure to do so. That used to be a standard election day offering, until mail-in voting became standard. Now, because many voters mark and return their ballots right after receiving them a couple of weeks before election day, the last-minute reminder seems somewhat archaic.

How many people besides me wait until the official deadline, Tuesday, to hand in their ballot? Why or why not?
