Your Washington State primary ballots are due by this Tuesday, August 6th by 8pm.

They can be returned by mail with no postage required, or to the nearest drop-box. If your ballot has been sitting on the table for a while, now is the time to go fill it in! There are important city and county-level races happening right now that you can have an impact on.

If you need help deciding who to vote for, we highly recommend the Fuse Progressive Voters Guide, which not only makes its own endorsements but aggregates other endorsements from newspapers, unions, NGO's and more:

The immigration courts are packed, scheduling hearings as far as 2023 because of an overloaded system burdened not only by volume due to current policies, but also due to previous policies by then A.G. Sessions to re-open suspended cold immigration cases and deny new non-decision cases to be suspended or delayed.
