Reed: Don’t dilly-dally. Get your ballots in

OLYMPIA -- Secretary of State Sam Reed is trying to goose voter interest a bit by suggesting that folks shouldn't wait until the last minute to cast their ballots.

In a press release Friday, Reed urged voters not to miss wait until the "fast-approaching deadline" but to "get their ballots in so they are definitely counted.

At the same time, he acknowledges that turnout in an off-year primary such as this is "normally tepid." Some voters don't even have a primary -- including everyone in Franklin and Wahkiakum counties.

For the record, the deadline is 8 p.m. Tuesday for your ballot envelope to be postmarked, or to be dropped in a deposit box. It is worth noting that if you're going to mail your ballot on Tuesday, you probably should take it to the post office to make sure it gets postmarked in time.
