A New, Friendly Elections Department

If the votes go my way today, this will usher in a new, friendly elections department wherein the 3 most important goals of elections: correctness of registration procedures, correctness of vote tabulation, and correctness of ballot processing procedures will be the main priority. Despite falsehoods on the internet, I do support verifiable paper trails (as if wasn't a fait accompli anyway with the optical scanner system that King County uses), and more than that, corroboration of machine results through hand recounts in sample random precincts for all elections regardless of the closeness of the vote. The new elections department, if it comes about today, will be exceptionally friendly, respectful of all candidates, and gracious to the public at large. There is still time to vote today before 12:00 AM, but the earlier that you get your ballot mailed, in either an official postal drop box (the last pick-ups at most postal mail boxes are generally from 3 PM - 5 PM), the post office, or an elections department drop box, the better. Thank you (the public) for giving me the opportunity to make my case for a brand new and friendly elections department.
