Submit your questions by noon, October 8

On October 8, 2020, the Jefferson County League of Women Voters and American Association of University Women-Port Townsend will present a webinar candidate forum featuring the candidates for Board of County Commissioners (District 2).

While only those voters living in District 2 were able to vote in the primary, all Jefferson County voters will participate in the final selection of the District 2Commissioner. Heidi Eisenhour and Lorna Smith, both Democrats, seek to represent the mid-county district that includes Chimacum, Hadlock, Irondale, Marrowstone Island, Kala Point, Woodland Hills and Cape George.

This Zoom webinar will occur on Thursday, October 8, from 6:30-8:00 pm, and media partner KPTZ 91.9 FM will simulcast the event, as well as live stream the broadcast online at KTPZ.org. 

At the forum, the candidates will give timed opening and closing statements, and will answer questions submitted by the public in advance via email to lwvjeffcowa@gmail.com. The League requests that questions be submitted no later than noon, October 8, 2020. Concise, unbiased questions will be given priority, some questions may be combined for time purposes, and every effort will be made to cover a wide range of subjects.

The forum will be moderated by Renee Klein, and will be recorded, edited forbrevity, and posted on YouTube on Dennis Daneau’s channel.

How to make sure your vote is counted

Ballots for the general election will be mailed  October 14. Those not yet
registered to vote are encouraged to register (or update their registration) as soon as possible. You can register online at VoteWa.org.  Online and mail registrations to vote must be received by October 26. In-person registration at the Jefferson County Courthouse is possible during business hours until close of business on November 3. Because of COVID-19 restrictions, you will need to be admitted to the courthouse for this purpose.  We recommend registering online by October 26.

Jefferson County currently has six secure ballot boxes located throughout the county, making it easy for everyone to ensure their ballot is secure and counted.  Because of the anticipated high voter turnout, we encourage use of the ballot boxes for those who are able, freeing up space in the postal system for those who will mail in their ballots.
