Quote of the Week:
“The nature of democracy, authentically, is not simply supporting from the bleachers and saying, “Gee, I hope you win the game.”It’s being on the field engaged in whatever large or small way possible…” –William Greider
Sign up to be a Vote Counting Observer
Thurston County Primary Election
Republicans in Thurston County are mobilizing to observe ballot processing and counting, and there is concern that they will create and spread misinformation about the trustworthiness of the elections process and security in Thurston County.
It is therefore essential to also have pro-democracy citizens observing ballot processing and counting.
Pro-Democracy Ballot Observers
Primary ballot processing and counting observers are needed now.
How to sign up:
Observers are appointed by political parties. Non-affiliated observers are also welcome.

Mason County is also doing observer training. Here is information for our Mason County members.

Ask Garland to Hold Trump Accountable
All January 6 conspirators need to be held accountable including the former president.
Garland’s caution may have put the Justice Department in a quandary
“By starting at the bottom of the chain, the Justice Department failed to look for evidence in Trump’s inner circle regarding his connection to the violent phase of the insurrection.”
Action: Contact Attorney General Merrick Garland.
Script: I demand accountability for former president Trump and his close circle of accomplices, including current members of congress regardless of the election calendar.
All the January 6 conspirators need to be held accountable. The evidence of their guilt is overwhelming and if they escape punishment, more treason and violence will come to America.
