Hundreds of volunteers on Capitol Hill — and thousands across the state — were making the rounds and making calls to get out the vote before Tuesday’s 2012 general election deadline. In King County, at least, expectations are for an even higher turnout than 2008. We found these two volunteers from Human Rights Campaign Seattle at work on behalf of R74 in the neighborhoods near Stevens Elementary. “Friendly neighborhood,” they agreed with CHS. Others slipped in time to make calls from home on behalf of favorite candidates and causes or signed up for Washington United for Marriage’s big Capitol Hill phone bank effort. Saturday night features a Seattle PrideFest Marriage Victory Party at Neumos. Don’t call it hubris. This is positive thinking. More GOTV efforts continue on Sunday. Expect to be asked a few dozen more times by Tuesday. It’s for a good cause.
