The general election is Nov. 8, but ballots will be mailed beginning around Oct. 20 -- so now is a good time to check out the election information we've compiled for WEA members.
And while the presidential election has garnered a lot of media attention, the outcome of legislative races here in Washington will have a huge impact on our K-12 public schools and higher education. On issues like smaller class sizes, competitive compensation and full funding for public education, the makeup of the 2017 Legislature matters a lot.
While they're important, legislative races are listed far down the ballot; our message this election is "Vote the Whole Ballot!"
Want to know which ballot measures WEA supports? How about which candidates are both pro-public education and pro-labor? Who is the WEA-PAC recommended candidate for Superintendent of Public Instruction?
Find out here, and then share with other WEA members.
If you are not registered to vote, or if you need to change your address, do it online by this Monday, Oct 10.
