Sunday Spin marks the highlights and low-lifes of Politics 2016

Sunday Spin 2: We’re No. 8

Got info about voter fraud? Call federal office

Eastern Washington residents with information about actual voter fraud are encouraged to report it.


Washington ballots top 1 million

Sunday Spin 2: Where’d my ballot go?

Yes, you can track your ballot after you send it in.


Legal fight over ‘Vote Early’ insert averted

Pierce County clarifies advice to mail ballots early, avoids threatened lawsuit from Washington Democrats.


New York Times article references Spokane legislative race
