Election day

©The Seattle Times
Today is election day, always the first Tuesday in November. Locally, the transportation measure known as Prop. 1 is one of the most important issues. The illustration above ran with the Seattle Times list of endorsements last Sunday. I liked the idea of the traffic light as a metaphor for the issues the editorial board is giving the green light, or the red light for that matter.
Hoy es jornada electoral, como todos los primeros martes de Noviembre. A nivel local, el referendum conocido como Proposition 1 es uno de los temas más destacados. Aquí pongo la ilustración que hice para la pagina editorial del domingo, donde se publicó la lista de candidatos que recomienda el consejo editorial del Seattle Times, así como su postura en los referendums a voto. Escogí idea del semáforo como metáfora de dar luz verde o roja a los diferentes candidatos y referendums.
