Voters unhappy in South Tacoma, too

Christa Rider, a voter at Hope Lutheran Church in South Tacoma, is upset about the demise of poll-station voting:

I don’t trust the mail-in votes. It also used to be a meeting thing. We used to vote at Manitou, but now we have to come here. It was a get-together. You see your neighbors.

Harry Schaffert
, another voter, thinks there are problems with all mail-in voting.

If you rely on the mail, then you have to pay for the postage. If they’re mailing it out, then they’re only mailing them to registered voters. What if there’s a mistake on the voting list?

Rita Schaffert had a simpler message:

I think it’s a lazy way out.
