As Washington bears down on a Monday, Oct. 5, voter deadline to register online or by mail, Secretary Wyman enlisted a little Seahawks star power to help spread the message.  Two-time Pro Bowler Mack Strong, the Hawks’ popular and talented fullback for many years, taped a 30-second video urging all eligible Washingtonians to get registered and then to vote.

“I thank Mack for helping spread the word that voting is a privilege and a right and we want every eligible Washingtonian taking part,” Wyman said Thursday.
