Armed With An Already Spotty Record, Schultz Didn’t Vote In Latest Local Election

Despite touting a message of civic engagement in his 2020 exploratory jaunt — thinly disguised as a book publicity tour — former Starbucks CEO and potential independent presidential candidate Howard Schultz has only voted in 11 of the last 38 elections, dating back to 2005, according to the Seattle Times.

And he continues to not do himself any favors on that front. In the latest local Seattle schools-levy election, Schultz never returned a ballot for a special election on Feb. 12. Both the school levy proposals passed with majority support.

Schultz told the Seattle Times he was proud of his “civic record” in Seattle.

“It would have been great to vote in every election, and I commend all of the Seattleites who have a 100% voting record. I didn’t vote in every local election, but I am proud of Sheri’s and my civic record in this community,” he said.
