King Conservation District Election
The KCD Election is underway until March 15th, with a new way to vote in an attempt to boost turnout.
The election is an "online voting" process. And seems like a better way to get voters involved, since voters won't need to drive to a few polling sites, like it was done in the past.
But some voters are finding this new process just as daunting. Some voters are finding the process that was meant to facilitate more participation, a bit more cumbersome. Some technology is required in order to participate. Voters need to go to the site "online", download and print a form, fill it out and return it via fax, scanner or mail. Then when "eligibility" is confirmed, one can vote. (Voters are eligible if they live in KCD contracting cities.)
It is a two step process to vote online.
Here are the steps from the KCD website:
Step 1 - Confirm Voter Eligibility: Click on the blue button below to obtain your Voter Application Form. Print, sign and submit by email(scanned copy), fax or US mail. We suggest voter applications submitted by US mail should be postmarked no later than March 11.
Step 2 - Vote On-line:Once your eligibility is confirmed, a personal identification number (PIN) will be issued by email with complete online voting access information.
Note: Please allow up to 48 hours after application for voting instructions and credentials to be issued.
The KCD is a very important, independent local District, that administers over 6 million dollars of conservation funding for such things as water quality and salmon recovery. Their Board of Supervisors are elected by King County Voters. Voters can also vote in person at the KCD offices on March 15th, You may vote in-person on March 15 between the hours of 9:00 am - 9:00 pm at the King Conservation District office: 1107 SW Grady Way, Suite 130, Renton, WA 98057 (across the parking lot from the former King County elections building). In-person voters should bring proper identification.
