Closed course, professional driver, do not attempt.

I think I am with Meinert on this.
1. It's his bar.
2. See #1
3. It is kind of creepy have a stranger film you. Things change when a camera is pointed at you.
4. It is only a matter of time before some lawyer decides to request Google Glass data to make their case.
5. I do believe it is still illegal in our state to record a conversation without consent.

Nice that the vote difference is 41. Since Seattle has a little over 410,000 voters it works out to a difference of .0001 percent. If only Richard could have convinced .0001 percent more of Seattle's voters during his 16 years in office. The pet goat lobby really let him down.
Things that happen next.
Ongoing denunciation from Fox et al. The Seattle Socialist Sawant does have an illeteritive ring go it.
Lawyers. I am guessing there is money in town to fund a Conlin verification.

Mailed mine Monday also received and verified but not counted.
The "losing" candidate would be wise to object to the signature discards. Having some random stranger decide if your signature matches your signature is very subjective. I could verify my family members signatures but that is it. I think King County is just eyeballing it.

@30 If you fly over the city ( or spend some time on Google maps) you'll see the majority of the land is covered by single family houses. Seattle is actually very suburban in many areas. What's more the people in those homes are allowed to vote and do so.
Also, the campaign finance laws are completely different for candidates than they are for measures.
I like the fact that Faye or anyone else will actually have someone they can turn to or scream at in District 5. They've actually never had that since the area was not part of Seattle back in 1910 when we went to the At-Large system. Think about that. They've never had someone to represent them and now they will.

Conlin won 5 races in row that makes him some kind of Ace. Also, District 3 doesn't automatically become Sawant's or anyone else. There's 70,000 voters there and I am sure there a more than a few with the ideas and abilities to represent it. It will be decided by an Election. I am starting the draft Mackelmore campaign now.
