Please Vote; There's A Transportation Item On The Ballot

A reminder to vote today if you haven't already. Either get yourself to your polling place or drop your ballot in the mail so the postmark shows you mailed it today.

Remember, there's an item on the ballot that would affect transportation in Washington State- I-985, the initiative Tim Eymann says will reduce traffic congestion but opponents say would take money away from the east side of the state.

Be sure to do your research. For more information on all state ballot items, check out the Washington Voter website. It's a non-partisan summary of the 2008 statewide initiatives prepared by the League of Women Voters.
