Primary in Washington today

So it's the first ever primary in August here in Washington state. Granted, in a lot of jurisdictions it's not exactly hot and heavy. But here's a handy link to the Secretary of State's list of auditor and election departments, if you need to find out where to drop your ballot or other information.

In Clark County, humans will be staffing the main drop-off location downtown after the drop bin was attacked by an Islamofascist automobile driver:
Police say a driver thought he saw a cat in the road, swerved and crashed into the drive-up ballot box at 14th and Esther streets ­Sunday about 7:20 p.m.

That box is ruined and now out of commission, said Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey.

"We don't think any ballots were lost, and only one ballot was outside of the box itself, and it was on the concrete pad that the box is mounted to," Kimsey said.

Kimsey said a new box on the sidewalk at the site will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, which is election day.
That darn cat. Not to fear, our democracy will prevail...
