Election officials expect voter turnout in November to be excellent, with record numbers of voters at the national, state and local levels. Presidential and races for Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, State Treasurer and Auditor, Attorney General, Insurance and Lands Commissioners, and Superintendent of Public Instruction all help drive interest and turnout.
Several critical races for Congress and County Commissioner compel Thurston County voters to be engaged and informed. These local races will directly shape and guide our community in more ways than the State-level races. Thurston County Chamber members must vote in these “down-ballot” races.
The Thurston Chamber encourages all voters to understand better the candidates and their positions concerning the local economy. We encourage you to use the Chamber’s election resources, including the videos below.
The business community must continue to be engaged in public policy. The election process enables Chamber members and voters to voice their priorities and interests with future elected leaders. Public policy is determined by those that participate. The easiest and most important step in participating is to vote. We encourage you to vote in this November’s general election. Your vote counts.
