You Can Now Rock Out To The Voter’s Pamphlet On Your iPod
We’re not quite to the point of voting over the internet, but last week, King County Elections announced that it is now offering audio versions of its votersâ€™ pamphlet at its website, meaning you can now rock out to ballot descriptions on your iPod.
Voters can now download the King County votersâ€™ pamphlet as a FREE MP3 file or do air guitar to to it online. King County Elections has provided a limited number of audio recordings of votersâ€™ pamphlets in the past, but now this feature is available for everyone, 24/7/365 at their website.
â€œWeâ€™re trying to improve services to voters who need them in order to vote privately and independently,â€ said Sandy McConnell, Elections Operations Manager. â€œThis new service also provides convenience to many voters who prefer to listen to an audio version of their pamphlet.â€
The audio votersâ€™ pamphlets, along with the text versions, are located on the Elections website here. Audio ballots are also available to support voting at all three accessible voting centers.
Here are direct links to the rockin’ MP3s, with pertinent ones boldfaced:
