Voting Your Ballot Yet? You Can Saturday With Local Republicans
Yakima County Republicans are hoping you'll grab your ballot and vote with others this Saturday at one of five different churches in Yakima and Union Gap and the GOP Headquarters.
THREE OPPORTUNITIES TO VOTE IN PERSON WITH OTHERS
Actually this Saturday's event will be one of three different opportunities voters will have to experience voting with others at one location. For many it's a chance to remember when voting was available in person at area schools before the state switched to all mail-in voting. A press release from the Yakima County Republican Party says "let’s come together as a united front, bringing friends and family, and make a resounding impact on these crucial election dates. Your vote is your voice, and it holds the power to shape our community’s destiny."
BRING YOUR BALLOT NO VOTING MACHINES AVAILABLE
Party Chair Matt Brown, also a Yakima City Council member says they won't have voting machines available but they're still hoping everyone will come together and show the importance of voting. Republican party officials will be available at the locations to answer questions and concerns. They also will provide "secure drop box locations, strategically placed throughout Yakima County, to cast your vote with confidence."
EVERYTHING IS LEGAL AND ABOVE BOARD
Yakima County Auditor Charles Ross says the party has the legal right to ask people to come together to vote. He also says they can legally provide dropbox locations for ballots to be collected and given to the Yakima County Auditors Office. Ross says even though there's nothing illegal about providing collection sites for ballots he reminds voters that you're responsible for your ballot.
Remember you don't need a stamp to drop it in the mail.
