Local celebrities offer election information
October 23, 2012
King County Elections turned to a lineup of boldface names — Olympic swimmer Nathan Adrian, mystery writer J.A. Jance and sports announcer Kevin Calabro — to share important tips for voters as the Election Day ballot deadline approaches.
Adrian, Jance and Calabro joined a regional voter education campaign featuring radio, TV and online ads to educate residents about the voting process. See the spots at the elections office website, www.kingcounty.gov/elections/news/psa/2012.
Sponsored by elections departments from King, Kitsap, Pierce and Snohomish counties, and the Office of the Secretary of State, the ads remind voters to sign return ballot envelopes and get ballots back on time.
Local elections officials started the voter education campaign before the August primary. The initial round of spots featured renowned chef Tom Douglas, travel guru Rick Steves and Seattle Storm players.
The celebrities involved in the campaign agreed to donate time for the effort.
