Are you kidding me? This is out of control. We need a Secretary of State that is going to bring our
elections back to fairness and justice.
The Secretary of State’s Office affects everything.
Our state elections need to be free, fair, and transparent.
This is the solution. We need to get back to in-person voting with proof of citizenship. There is only an
election day. Not an election week where cheaters can find fake ballots and make them suddenly appear
of out nowhere. There is a great need for election observers on both sides of the aisle, but even with
that, if anyone can vote without proof of citizenship, then we are still losing this battle.
This November voters have a choice of three candidates.
Steve Hobbs- He was appointed by Inslee and will do nothing to change our elections and voting
Julie Anderson- Julie Anderson wants ranked-choice voting. There will be no top two you would vote on
But there is hope! We have a write-in candidate in November for Secretary of State-Brad Klippert
Brad Klippert promises to do these five things for fair and just Washington State Elections:
- Ensure that Washington State Elections will be secure, full of integrity, and transparent
- Ensure all Washington State Voters are American Citizens. This will require a voter ID.
- Eliminate “Mail-in-Voting” and Restore in Person voting.
- Make Election Day a holiday where people can vote, watch the process, get together with
friends and families, and enjoy the day.
- Oppose “Rank Choice Voting” This is a method of voting in which voters rank candidates or
courses of action in order of preference, instead of making a single choice.
Washington’s voice, YOUR Voice, begins with open and honest elections because that is how the
people’s choices are made. Justice begins here. Public Safety begins with elected public
policymakers. Lawmaking begins with fair elections. Do you believe that our election systems are
manipulated? Do you worry about stolen elections?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then the choice is clear.
