In the county that couldn't vote straight, a woman registered her best friend:
Jane Balogh had a pretty good idea who was calling when the phone rang and the caller asked for Duncan M. MacDonald.
Duncan is the dog Balogh registered as a voter seven months before the November 2006 election.
Duncan's absentee-ballot envelope was signed with a picture of a paw print.
"You can't sign with a paw print," the election worker told Balogh on Nov. 9.
"I said, 'he can if he's a dog,' " answered Balogh, a 66-year-old grandmother and Army veteran who lives in Federal Way.
....Balogh will be arraigned in King County Superior Court on Tuesday on a misdemeanor charge of making a false statement to a public official.
