I am a Democrat but voted for Sam Reed for Secretary of State because of the professional manner in which his office dealt with the issues related to the 2004 governor's race.

Our current Secretary of State, Sam Reed, has fought for our state to keep an open primary instead of forcing us to be controlled along party lines. For this alone he would get my vote. But additionally he has represented us in foreign countries in the past, overseeing their elections, because he is seen as a fair, knowlegable statesman. We are lucky to have him, and should re-elect him.

It would help to have descriptions linked to the candidates/issues. I was on the fence for some because I didn't have enough info.

Not prepared to vote right now, lots of these folks I do not know. Will vote mainly Republican, especially for President and Governor. Need to get on the internet and study, which I will do this week.

Why no vote on the most important position? (Dino Rossi) Our state depends on it.

The two incumbent Supreme Court justices who are being challenged are excellent and should be retained. Vote for Fairhurst and Johnson!

Why are the regional newspapers not discussing Scott White's financial support for 46th district. This is a putative Democrat taking PAC money from fireworks, waste managment and corporate energy PACS

Sam Reed continues to be the most qualified to serve as Sec of State. He served successfully in the "trenches" as an auditor and was a leader during the 2004 govenor's race.

The Public Lands race in particular is not getting enough attention in the press and there is a very clear difference between the incumbent and the challenger Peter Goldmark.
Little critical attention is being paid to the actual record of Rob McKenna either - again there is a clear contrast with qualifications and positions between he and the challenger Laudenburg

Mark Greene for Secretary of State: He supports general postal mail voting and the Top 2 Primary, your right to vote for any candidate in primaries. Jason Osgood is against "Top 2" and against general postal mail voting.

What about the 36th District?

Party loyalty is in conflict with constitutional loyalty. I know more people voting for a party than for our constitution. This is to our own demise. Hopefully, by the time we get to the generals, we will still have constitutional choices in some of these elected offices. How sad. I am sick of the word democracy. It isn't even in the constitution. I am sick of party loyalty usurping the constitution. Sheep, everywhere.

I choose Rossi, Marilyn Montgomery for Sec. of State, Glenn Freeman for Auditor, Arlene Peck for Lt. Governor, and Enid Duncan for School Sup.
