Jason Osgood Declares Candidacy for King County Director of Elections
Excellent News Everyone:

Election integrity activist Jason Osgood is officially running for King County, WA Director of Elections! Media release below.

Osgood is a long-time advocate of paper ballots and transparent elections. I think the election integrity community nationwide needs to get behind this campaign and spread the word with the faithful! This is the best opportunity in ages to make real progress on the issue of election integrity in King County and elsewhere. Many DUers are surely familiar with the chaos and corruption of KC elections. Our community could actually be a role model on this issue instead of an embarrassment! I can only imagine.

It already looks like at least 3 Republicans are in this thing, plus a gob of other potential randoms. If Osgood can pull the Democratic base I think he has an outstanding chance to win and turn around one of the worst Election Divisions in the Nation.

Donate money! Donate Time! Go Jason!

Jason Osgood Declares Candidacy for King County Director of Elections

Jason Osgood, co-founder of the election integrity watchdog group Washington Citizens for Fair Elections, today officially declared his candidacy for King County Director of Elections.

On November 4th, the voters of King County passed I-25, creating the new position of Director of Elections and sending a clear signal that the management of King County Elections should be removed from the control of career politicians.

Osgood, in announcing his intention to file for office, pledged to bring fairness and impartiality to KC Elections and to end the divisive politics of the past.

The Director of Elections must be fair, impartial, and utterly committed to transparency and accountability, Osgood said, My highest priority as Director of Elections will be to ensure that every eligible voter has the opportunity to cast a ballot, and that all votes are counted correctly.

Additionally, Osgood promised to work to protect voter privacy while also ensuring a publicly accessible vote counting process.

Osgood brings a high degree of experience and professionalism to the race for Director of Elections. He has worked for more than 20 years in high technology managing complex projects and has a unique understanding of the technology increasingly used to manage our election systems.

The voters have made it clear they want a professional with the necessary skills and expertise to conduct our elections, said Osgood.
