Remember to vote for Sherril Huff

Starting today, we're going to post daily reminders about next Tuesday's special election to pick a Director of Elections for King County.

The number of absentee ballots that has the county has received from voters so far is abysmally low. It is estimated that ninety percent of voters who received ballots in the mail have neglected to return their ballots.

This election is incredibly important. The stakes are high: Will we have a skilled professional at the helm of King County Elections through the end of 2011, or an unqualified and potentially deeply partisan individual in charge?

The NPI Advocate has endorsed Sherril Huff because she is by far the best candidate for the job. She knows how to manage elections and she capably represented the people of Kitsap County as their Auditor for eight years.

We are fortunate to have her as our Director of Elections now - and we need to keep her working for us.

Jason Osgood, the Democratic nominee for Secretary of State in 2008, said of Huff when she announced her intention to run for Director of Elections:
Huff is currently the appointed head of the department and is now the most experienced and best qualified candidate seeking this position. Her exemplary performance in the November general election clearly demonstrated that Huff is the most logical choice in this race.
Tuesday's election is a choice between moving onwards and forwards or sliding backwards with the takeover of the department by one of Huff's unqualified rivals. What will it be? The decision is in our hands.

The only thing to do is follow Jason Osgood's advice. Jason knows best.
