Vote and encourage other conservatives to vote. All voting in Washington is done by mail. Ballots will be mailed Oct 19. You can mail your completed ballot without a stamp or put it in one of many ballot boxes which will be placed in public locations throughout the state.
Tip for reducing election mail and phone calls: vote promptly after your ballot arrives! Election officials scan the bar code on your ballot when you it arrives to be counted. Only you know how you voted; election officials and candidates know your ballot was cast. Near election day, candidates usually focus on calling and mailing voters who have not yet cast their ballot.

I-1631 – Pollution / Carbon Tax – VOTE NO
This bill is flawed, ineffective, and will line the pockets of special interests. By imposing higher taxes on gas, electricity, and natural gas, they plan to force every household to cut back on gasoline and home heat. Over 15 years they’ll spend $15 billion in tax money with no accountability for results. Can you afford to pay more to get to work every day and to heat your home this winter? There are effective alternatives. Discover why Seattle’s respected climate scientist, Cliff Mass, recommends a NO VOTE on I-1631.
I-1634 – Prohibits New Grocery Taxes – VOTE YES
Prohibits local governments from imposing or collecting new taxes and fees on certain groceries. It also prohibits an increase on existing local taxes on certain groceries. This bill protects families, food producers, and vendors.
I-1639 – Concerns Firearms – VOTE NO
This bill jeopardizes our Second Amendment rights, limits the ability of law-abiding citizens to lawfully protect themselves, and is unlikely to reduce violent crime.
I-940 – Concerns Law Enforcement – VOTE NO
Public safety opposes this bill; although it is complex, there are several issues it does not address properly. Public safety officials want to work with legislators in order to pass a more effective bill in 2019.
Advisory Vote No. 19 – VOTE TO REPEAL
Vote to repeal Senate bill 6269 which imposes expanded taxes on petroleum products received by pipeline and costs $13,000,000 over ten years. We already have safeguards over oil transport and don’t need unnecessary further taxation on petroleum products.
