Get Out the Vote Doorbell Day

Saturday, July 22nd 
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
RE Sources for Sustainable Communities
2309 Meridian St, Bellingham (map)

Join us as we hit the streets to talk to voters door to door about the local primary election (ballots are due August 1). During local election years, only half of Whatcom County's registered voters return ballots, compared to over 80% during presidential election years. Even less people turn out for the primary election. The officials you vote for in local elections make decisions that impact you directly – from keeping our drinking water clean to providing our community with renewable energy jobs.

Pro tips: Please bring sunscreen, comfortable shoes or sandals suitable for walking, a shoulder bag or backpack, and a water bottle. We'll have the snacks, coffee, and tea and provide the training! For more information, email GOTV@re-sources.org or call (360) 733-8307 ext. 223.

Public Comment Periods

Looking for information about public comment periods for cleanup plans or pollution permits in Washington state? 
Visit our Water Quality Permits page for more information.

In Washington, pollution permits are issued under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and regulated by the state Department of Ecology. When permits come up for review, citizens can participate in the public process and comment on the details of the permit, calling for stronger environmental regulations where necessary.
