Never despair because we are Stronger Together! A Letter from the Chair

Many of you have expressed concern over the election results for Lucy Madrigal running for Mount Vernon City Council and Christina Jepperson running for Sedro-Woolley School Board.

Despite the slight lead their opposing candidates have, please rest assured there are still steps to be taken.  First, this slight lead means a mandated recount done by and paid for by the Auditor’s office. 

Secondly, we will contact every Democrat in the districts of the candidates who have ballots that were rejected, either because their signature does not match the one on file (our signatures change over time) or they simply forgot to sign their ballots. In both cases the ballots are still legal if they are “cured” by having the voters sign a ballot signature cure form and submit it to the Auditor’s Office.

Last but not least, the results will be certified on November 28.

If you want to participate in the Ballot curing process, please contact Brenda Cunningham at secretary@skagitdemocrats.org.  There will be a team in Sedro-Woolley for Christina Jepperson and a team in Mount Vernon for our City Council race.

We never despair because we are Stronger Together!

Thank you in advance for your willingness to participate in democracy!

Respectfully,

Lynn
