First, let me use this opportunity to promote the first of six election videos in the race for state House to replace state Rep. John Ahern. Look for the other videos featuring candidates Democrat Dennis Dellwo and Republican Jeff Holy throughout the week.

The last day to register to vote in time to participate in the November election was substantially slower than expected in Spokane County.

About 400 people came to the Spokane County elections office to register on Monday. That’s down from about 1,700 people who registered on the last day in 2008 – the year of the previous presidential election.

But County Auditor Vicky Dalton doesn’t believe the decline is a sign of weakening participation. There are just fewer procrastinators this year, she said.
