Aaaarrrr they be trying to steal our plunder

Seattle voters will get a say on whether Sonics owners should receive a $220 million subsidy they have been seeking to renovate KeyArena.

The City Council voted unanimously Monday to put Initiative 91 on the Nov. 7 ballot. I-91 is sponsored by Citizens for More Important Things, a group that unsuccessfully fought against public funding for the Mariners' and Seahawks' stadiums.

...

Mayor Greg Nickels has said I-91 isn't helpful to those who want to keep the teams in the state. The Sonics' Oklahoma-based owners have said the measure would have "no effect" on their efforts to negotiate an arena deal to keep the teams in the area.


So.....if I-91 has no effect on the Sonics staying in the state, why does City Council want $220 million?

Voting

So I really want to vote this November. The problem is, I'm not sure where I am registered. I've moved around Seattle 4 times in 4 years. Everytime I move I submit and change of address to the post office and I have received new voter registration cards most of the time. Now I've moved to Snohomish county and again I changed my address. No new voters registration card this time. Is there a way I can check if I am registered and see if there are multiple registrations (from moving) that I could get rid of?

Today is Election Day in Seattle

Reminder
Today is primary election day in Seattle.

I assume 'Go Vote' was considered to political. Hopefully the mods will consider this as being 'less political' as I am not telling anyone to go vote, but just being informative about a Seattle event.

Please only post responses that are informative, e.g. polling locations, and nothing that the mods might consider as political.

Better?
