FYI about mail-in ballots

Voters may think that by registering to vote with the county they’ll get a mail-in ballot application for all elections. This is not true. Special district elections require voters to submit a special absentee ballot to receive a ballot by mail. I have consistently advocated against this confusing process and worked with legislators to try and change it.

This straightforward and fair concept is center to my campaign for the board. Though absentee ballots are not yet posted on the West Metro website, they are available on my website at:
