Civic Pride recognizes voters who've voted for 50 years or more. Every two years, the Auditor's Office holds a special ceremony to thank these voters for their contributions to democracy.
In 2017, we honored more than 300 voters at a ceremony on July 15 at the RL Hotel in Olympia. Honorees were joined by Former Washington Secretary of State Sam Reed, Olympia Council Member Renata Rollins and State Auditor Pat McCarthy.
Local groups Entertainment Explosion and Inspire to Debbi's Dance provided entertainment for the celebration. The Thurston County Sheriff's Office conducted the flag ceremony.
We look forward to recognizing more 50 year voters in 2021 at our next Civic Pride celebration.
