March 12, 2024

1. Today, Tuesday, March 12th is the last day to vote in the Washington State Presidential primary. There is a national movement to vote Uncommitted Delegates WA as a challenge to Biden's support for the Israeli war on Gaza and to support a permanent cease fire and no more military aid to Israel.

If you have a ballot, you can select the ballot that says Democratic Party ballot and vote uncommitted. You need to check on the envelope Democratic Party but you don't have to be a Democrat beyond this vote.

Your ballot needs to be postmarked by 8 PM today. If you are not registered or don't have a ballot, you can go to the Thurston County courthouse complex, 2400 Evergreen Park DR SW, Olympia or where you live and register and vote until 8:00 PM. Please do so. This is part of a many pronged campaign to end US support for Israel's genocidal war. 

2. PASS is sponsoring the Rachel Corrie birthday memorial and Palestine solidarity event and will have a table there.
