Print issue coming up!

By • on September 30, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Even though ETS! – bowing to the inevitabilities of cost and changing reader habits – discontinued regular publication of our print edition a couple of years ago, we’ve continued to print election editions. And we’re doing it again this year.

If you’d like to contribute (or advertise!), our editorial deadline is Friday afternoon, Oct. 12 – the end of next week. Contact geovparrish(at)gmail.com if you’d like to write something or share comics, artwork, or other material. We could also really use distributors for when the paper comes out the following Wednesday, Oct. 17, through the end of that week. Contact Lance at lanscot(at)drizzle.com for that one.

Ballots for the Nov. 6 general election will be mailed about when our print issue comes out; the deadline in Washington state for receiving mail or online new voter registration or address changes is Monday, Oct. 8. Information and forms for doing that locally are here. Deadline for in-person registration is Monday, October 29.

With this being a presidential election year, chances are really good that we’ll have to say something about that race. But we’ll have plenty to say on the rest of them, too, as well as news and views on other progressive and radical issues and movements. And, of course, we’ll also feature our election picks on Eat the Airwaves! on KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle, 8:30 AM on the Saturday mornings of Oct. 20 and 27.
