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 10 at the RL Hotel in Olympia. Honorees were joined by Attorney General Bob Ferguson and Washington State Senator Sam Hunt and former State Senator Karen Fraser, both of whom were also recipients of the honor.
Local groups Entertainment Explosion and Inspire to Move Dance Academy provided entertainment for the celebration and the Thurston County Sheriff's Office conducted the flag ceremony.
We look forward to recognizing more 50 year voters in 2019 at our next Civic Pride celebration.
