King County, Wash.—King County Elections seeks to reach record-breaking voter turnout in this year's November general election. Officials predict 90% voter turnout for the general election, which is up from their previous prediction of 86%. The existing record is 85% voter turnout in the 2012 general election. There was an 82% turnout for the 2016 general election, according to a statement from the King County Elections office.(Snip) We’re challenging them to turn their ballot in early,” said King County Director of Elections Julie Wise. “Here at King County Elections, we want to make sure that every voice is heard.”

Comments:

Anything less than 120% turnout would be dubious at best.

How about letting those who WANT to be heard going to the tiny bit of trouble TO be heard and not forcing those with nothing to say to say something STUPID. Voting should be left to those who have a freaking clue.

Here's a novel idea, why don't they count the votes they receive as they come in, instead of waiting for election day? And, how about keeping a running total too, that way it's harder to cheat since everyone knows who is receiving a ballot since they all have access to the voter registration rolls. I still think every ballot should have a scan code, and number associated with it, so everyone can track and trace their ballot. Even the USPS has this feature.

King County wants those ballots in early, so they'll know how many they need to print up for the win. King County politics is why my father got out of Wash. state in the late 60's, it was already suspect then.

I think we should have some sort of raffle to see who can guess the percentage without going over. I seriously doubt it will be over 200%, but you never know how well they'll "get out the vote(s)!

Ninety percent turnout, that’s nothing. King County voter turnout was greater than 100 percent in the 2004 governors race when Republican Dino Rossi won two recounts. Then in the third recount, democrat Christine Gregoire took the lead by 129 votes and was declared the winner. That is absolute proof of massive vote fraud. But, of course, democrats got away with it.

They must actually be concerned that Trump is going to make real headway here in Washington in November. Certainly outside of King County, Trump has a lot of support, you see more Trump and culp for Governor signs than Biden (I just saw the first Inslee signs a few days ago). On average, king County doesn’t get anywhere near 90% (I think 2016 maybe 61%), so I guesS they are already filling boxes to find with Biden and inslee votes Before the ballots start coming in.

#13, I remember something about the dims finding something like 10,000 votes that weren't counted, and led to Gregoire's winning. Which doesn't surprise me in the least! (Most of those votes being for Gregoire.)

Two illegal immigrants suspected of an MS-13 gang killing of a 16-year-old girl in Baltimore were in police custody before, but were set free by authorities in New York and Maryland in defiance of deportation requests, allowing them to be out on the streets, ICE said Tuesday. Gabriela Alejandra Gonzalez-Ardon was found dead in woods near Loch Raven Reservoir in late May. Five people have been charged in the killing, and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says three of them are illegal immigrants—and two of them were free because of sanctuary policies. “This is the worst-case scenario,”

Royal fans were outraged after the Duchess of Sussex was left out of photos shared on social media to mark Prince Harry's 36th birthday today.

The Jets and Bills opted out of taking a stand–or a knee–during the national anthem, choosing to stay inside. But the NFL’s reigning MVP had no such qualms. From Colin Kaepernick on, the NFL has been among the leagues most resistant to social media messaging. That’s why it was so noteworthy to see the MVP–Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson–taking a knee during the national anthem of Sunday’s season opener against Cleveland.(Snip) And while some Baltimore teammates knelt while others sat on the bench during the anthem, Ravens ownership backed their star player. “We respect and support our players’ right to protest peacefully.

An analysis conducted by The Associated Press and Chalkbeat shows that districts where the vast majority of students are white are more than three times as likely to be open for some in-person learning compared to school districts that enroll mostly students of color. While that stark divide often reflects the preferences of parents, it’s one that could further exacerbate inequities in education. Responses from 677 school districts surveyed by the AP and Chalkbeat found that most students will begin the school year online. But the survey shows that race is a strong predictor of which public schools are offering in-person instruction

According to a report at international human rights watchdog organization C-Fam, South African Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng has risen quickly at the U.N., from “sexual health and rights advocate” to the top post of Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health, a role that will give her a global platform to urge the decriminalization of the sex trade. “Mofokeng’s reports advancing sexual rights, including the legalizing of prostitution, will likely be cited as authoritative interpretations of human rights law by U.N.

And it ruled that the Green Party’s candidate for president did not strictly follow procedures for getting on the ballot in November and cannot appear on it.

The letter follows the lawsuit from the New York attorney general seeking to dissolve the powerful pro-gun interest group announced last month.
