Who local transportation organizations endorsed in the 2020 general election

Photo of two adults and a child wearing bike helmets while putting ballots in a drop box.Your ballot is either in the mail or has already arrived. If you are in King County, you can check your ballot’s status online here. The tracker now indicates whether it has been mailed or has been delivered, which is very cool. The deadline to register online is October 26, but you can also register anytime up to and including the day of the election if you go in-person (online is encouraged during the pandemic, though). Ballots must be postmarked by November 3 or delivered to a ballot drop box before 8 p.m. November 3.

Here’s a look at endorsements and recommendations from local transportation organizations, including The Urbanist (“U”), Washington Bikes (“WB”), Seattle Subway (“SUB”) and the Transit Riders Union (“TRU”). Visit their sites to read more about their decisions. Note that these orgs sometimes cover different areas. So sometimes a non-endorsement means they couldn’t decide, but sometimes it means they just aren’t covering that race or issue.

    I’m interpreting the omission of the presidential race as a statement that the choice is too obvious to be worth mentioning, as it is hard to imagine anyone actually indifferent between the two candidates.

    1. Tom Fucoloro

      Yes.

  2. Jan Bird

    Nice family photo!

    I have a question that’s not really bike-related as far as I know, but endorsement-related: I’ve not been able to find useful information in the King County judge races. I read their candidate statements and briefly browsed their websites but can’t really distinguish between them (Doug North vs. Carolyn Ladd; Andrea Robertson vs Hillary Madsen). Any good sources out there on those races?

      I personally voted to re-elect all Supreme Court judges that struck down I-976. The ruling came down just in time.
