In Thurston County, turnout for local elections is depressingly and not-uncommonly low. In the last primary in August, Thurston County turnout was only just over 22 percent. That's bad.
Ballot parties, especially in vote by mail states, can be the most effective tool to boosting local election turnout. They are also a fun excuse for a party and an ideal way to make sure everyone knows what the heck they’re voting for. Even if you and your friends don’t agree, at least an informed decision is being made.
What you need: Ballot, Pens, Voter Pamphlets
What you do: Leverage the collective intelligence of those around you by holding discussions while you fill out your ballot.
Please attend the Olympia Indivisible Ballot Party, or host your own!
Thursday, July 26 at 6:30 PM - 8 PM at Octapas Cafe, 414 E 4th Ave, Olympia.
