November 2, 2021, is Election Day.  Off year elections historically have lower turnout than national elections, but they are often more significant locally. This year there are many advisory issues on the state slate, which should be heeded.

If you are not registered, do not fret, you can still do so tomorrow. Below are links to the state and county voter’s pamphlets that will allow you to study up on the local issues and candidates in your districts. If for some reason you did not receive a ballot in the mail or have misplaced it, that can also be rectified tomorrow.

Of special interest is the Everett City Council races. As we covered last year, Everett went through the redistricting process, which was highly debated. Should it have occurred before the 2020 census numbers were in or not. Everett now has five districts and two at large members. The at large members are not up for election until 2023, but three of the other districts will represent new faces specifically to your area.

Please take a moment to study and understand the positions of the candidates, as they will be making policy decisions that impact you directly. These links will also provide voter registration information, day of election information and other pertinent information to make you voice heard and your vote count.
