Remember to vote

August 6 Primary Election #

A friendly reminder from the WSNA-PAC Board that Washington state’s Primary Election is tomorrow, Tuesday, August 6 – no postage is required to mail your ballot!

While most candi­dates on the ballot are running in local races, such as county council/​commissioner, city council, school board, etc. – the WSNA-PAC has endorsed candi­dates in two special election legisla­tive races. Those are:

  • 13th Legisla­tive District (Kittitas, Lincoln, Grant counties)
    The WSNA-PAC endorsed Repre­sen­ta­tive Alex Ybarra (R) in this race. Rep. Ybarra was appointed to fill the position vacated by Rep. Matt Manweller. During his first session, Rep. Ybarra had a 100% voting record on WSNA prior­i­ties, including support for breaks and overtime protec­tions (SHB 1155) in every House vote. You can read more about his background here.
  • 40th Legisla­tive District (San Juan County, part of Whatcom and Skagit counties)
    The WSNA-PAC endorsed Senator Liz Lovelett (D) in this race. Senator Lovelett was appointed to fill the position vacated by Senator Kevin Ranker. During her first session, Senator Lovelett had a 100% voting record on WSNA prior­i­ties and was a strong advocate for nurses as we fought to pass breaks and overtime protec­tions (SHB 1155). You can read more about her background here.

Turn those ballots in – when nurses vote, we all win!
