    "She’s spent the last 12 years becoming one of the most respected elections supervisors in the state, and she’s exactly what the Secretary of State’s office needs for this moment in history."

  • The Olympian
    "[Julie Anderson] has deeper expertise in elections — the marquee issue in this race — and we believe having a nonpartisan Secretary of State is the best way to make inroads into reassuring some segments of our state the integrity of our elections is being protected."
    Read Endorsement
  • Tri-City Herald
    "In the current political climate where misinformation is made worse by political parties amplifying extreme messages, Anderson would be seen as a neutral leader. ... She has over 40 election officials backing her from around the state, both Democrats and Republicans, including Benton County Auditor Brenda Chilton. ... But the greatest concern right now is ensuring there is faith in our election system, and having a nonpartisan official in charge of state elections would go a long way in bringing back trust in our process. ... We don’t doubt Anderson would also protect our election system, and we think her nonpartisan status is needed to help counter those who question the validity of election results.
