That’s why it’s so important that you mail in your ballot for the 2013 general election immediately. Here just a few of the candidates and issues that may be on your local ballot: 

  1. An unprecedented NINE Teamsters – including four Local 117 members at the Department of Corrections – are running for city council; 
  2. The largest living wage campaign in the country is happening in the city of SeaTac; 
  3. Voters on the Peninsula will decide whether or not to tilt the State Senate in favor of working families;
