Island County Voter Guides distributed
October 16, 2012 · Updated 2:40 PM
General Election ballots will be mailed to local voters this week.
Also being distributed this week is the Whidbey Island Voter Guide, a publication developed by Whidbey Island’s community newspapers — The Whidbey Examiner, The Whidbey News-Times and the South Whidbey Record — to help voters learn about the candidates and issues that are on the November ballot.
The guide presents statements and photos submitted by political candidates to the Washington Secretary of State’s Elections Division.
“After the Island County Auditor’s Office announced it could not afford to publish a county voter guide as it had in the past, we stepped up to provide that service to our readers,” said Publisher Kasia Pierzga. “We feel it is critically important for voters to be able to find that information not only online, but also in print, delivered to their door with their local newspaper.”
The Voter Guide is in the Oct. 17 issue of the Whidbey News-Times and South Whidbey Record, and the Oct. 18 issue of The Whidbey Examiner. Additional copies will be available at local libraries and post offices.
