The 2020 election season is in full-swing. IBEW Local 73 knows that these elections could be the most important elections our members have ever participated in. The first major milestone in this year’s political process is here, the Washington State primary election on Tuesday, August 4th.
In recognition of the great importance of these elections to working families in Washington State, Local 73 wants all its members to know which candidates so far have proved to have Working Family’s best interests in mind, based on their voting records and questionnaire responses. Click here for a a list of these candidates and issues endorsed by Local and State Labor Councils, Local and State Building Trades Councils and IBEW Local 73. Please take a close look at the candidates and where they stand on the issues when considering who to support. The listed candidates are committed to supporting the concerns of organized labor and all working families.
Primary elections are often ignored, but we can’t afford to sit by and let others decide who will represent us. Along with the need to choose our own representatives.
You should have already received your ballot and they must be returned to the County Auditor by August 4th. Mailed ballots must be postmarked by election day, Drop-Boxes will close by 8:00PM on election day and voter Service-Centers are open from 7:00Am to 8:00PM on election day.
If you don’t receive a ballot it’s possible you’re not registered to vote, even if you have been before. If there are any questions about your voting status I urge you to please contact Local 73 (509) 326-2182. Find more election info on the Political-Action page on our website www.ibew73.org.
