The Olympian weighs in with Passport rule will harm tourism.
They do a great job detailing the process of getting a passport here in Oly now:
First of all, there are only three outlets: the Olympia Post Office, the county clerk’s office and the juvenile and family law center. The post office processes applications from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. The family law center takes applications from 10 a.m. until noon Monday through Thursday, with the clerk’s office open from noon until 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
Passports are relatively costly, too: $67 plus a $30 processing fee. Applicants must have passport photographs, a certified copy of a birth certificate and picture ID. It takes six weeks after an application is filed for the passport to be issued.
Maybe because I've not yet had enough coffee, all I can think about is that our postmark will be taken away, but we will have to get passports to travel to Canada. I am so confused.
