Here’s some cool election policy news for the state of Washington!

“Washington State will become the first in the nation to use Facebook for voter registration. The secretary of state will soon unveil an application on its Facebook page that allows residents to register to vote and then “like” the application and recommend it to their friends, according to this Seattle Times article. While you’re at it, make sure you like United Way of King County too!”
