Democracy is really in our hands | Letter

Dear voters of the 45th Legislative District of Washington state,

I hope you are all aware of the importance of the special election in your district on Nov. 7. You will vote on a really important state senate race. I encourage you all to mail in your ballots. If you are not registered to vote, the last day to register in person is Oct. 30 and you can do so at the county elections office at 919 S.W. Grady Way in Renton. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a high voter turnout? The history of voter turn in our state shows we can do way better.

Democracy is really in our hands and local elections have an incredible impact on our lives. Learn about the candidates and get out there.

Manka Dhingra is the progressive voice. Read about her, listen to interviews with her. We know advertising in politics is full of misrepresentations and flat-out untruths. Read about her actual views on taxes, the opioid crisis, transportation, climate, etc.

We’re all counting on you!
