An Interview With WA’s Secretary of State

News editor Donna Blankinship interviewed Steve Hobbs about boosting voter confidence ahead of this year's elections.

Washington’s Secretary of State has a big year ahead.  

The 2024 election is already underway as Washington voters begin to cast their ballots in the presidential primary. Voters have until March 12 to choose among a handful of candidates, including Joe Biden and Donald Trump — the likely nominees for president.  

In mid-February, Crosscut’s news editor, Donna Blankinship, interviewed Washington Secretary Steve Hobbs to hear his thoughts on different election-related matters.  

In this episode of Crosscut Reports, Blankinship speaks with Hobbs about protecting election workers, combating misinformation, ranked-choice voting and more.
