The Yakima County Republican Party is bringing in-person voting back to Yakima County in October and in November. Party Chair Matthew Brown says they know how frustrating Washington's mail-in voting system can be and they know many people miss a chance to visit a polling place and cast a ballot.

YOU'LL NEED TO BYOB OR BRING YOUR OWN BALLOT

Brown says you won't see a voting machine, you'll need to bring your ballot to one of six different churches where you'll be able to meet republican party members, vote your ballot and receive an "I voted" sticker. That's similar to the experience voters had before Washington became the second state in the country to go all-in on mail-in voting. Washington state followed the first state, Oregon, which enacted its law in 2000. In 2011 with 38 of 39 counties switched to Vote-by-Mail lawmakers in the Washington Legislature voted to require the system statewide.

THREE DIFFERENT DATES YOU'LL HAVE A CHANCE TO VOTE IN-PERSON

Ever since then many people have criticized the system saying they believe it's open to fraud. Brown says they've heard the concerns and hope people take advantage of the new local voting option dates set for October 21, 28, and November 4 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm each day. According to the Yakima County Republican Party website they hope everyone comes together "as a united front, bringing friends and family, and make a resounding impact on these crucial election dates. Your vote is your voice, and it holds the power to shape our community’s destiny."

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
