Sound Off for November 3rd: It’s election day! Have you voted?

More than 3,000 local races are also taking place across the state of Washington, ranging from city councils, school boards port commissions and local tax measures.

In Spokane, voters will decide the mayor’s race and Prop 1, the so called, Worker’s Bill of Rights.

Voters are also deciding on four non-binding advisory votes on tax increases approved by the Legislature earlier this year, including a gas tax increase and an excise tax on medical marijuana. Regardless of the result on those votes, no changes in state law will occur because of them.

Voters across the state received their ballots at home weeks ago for today’s election, but the secretary of state’s office has predicted that just 46 percent of the state’s four million voters would return their ballots.
