LETTER: Group makes its election research available

In case you haven’t noticed all of the competing election signs all over Clallam County, 2018 is an election year.

And like many citizens who feel strongly about voting as part of their civic duty, you plan to vote.

Thanks to Washington’s vote-by-mail system, voting can’t be any easier.

The hard part is voting responsibly and with confidence that your vote actually supports what you want it to support.

And that takes a lot of effort because there’s a lot of information out there.

With this understanding, Indivisible Sequim’s Endorsement Committee did the research that we all wish we could do if we had the time.

Our committee of mostly retired professionals — librarians, attorneys, school teachers, ranchers, tech industry, business and others, examined campaign websites, news sources (including the PDN), Clallam County Auditor’s website, Washington State’s Public Disclosure Commission, sites that track campaign funding, and many others, while also attending candidate forums and speaking directly to candidates and spokespeople for the initiatives and ballot measures.

The committee then distilled this information and presented it to Indivisible Sequim members who then voted on whether or not to endorse each of the items that will appear on Sequim’s ballot.

We know how important your vote is to you.

Please feel free to visit our site, indivisiblesequim.org, and take from it what information you wish.

Both the research and the results of Indivisible Sequim’s poll are on our website and Facebook page for anyone who wants to take advantage of our efforts.
