A closer look at King County

The petitioners in the Washington gubernatorial election seem to be cutting it awfully close with the timing of their depositions.

On the Secretary of State's web site is a subpoena dated May 11 which is directed to King County Division of Records, Elections and Licensing Services. The subject of the deposition seems to include, among other things, the so-called ballot reconciliation process done by King County. The deposition would occur on May 19 according to the subpoena -- only four days before the start of trial.

Here's hoping that the petitioners already have a pretty good idea what the answers to their questions are.
