Election Night 2012 | Capitol Hill, Seattle, Washington

Had the pleasure to photograph one of the most historic events to occur in my city in my lifetime. In a complete wash, Barack Obama was reelected while Referendum 74 and I-502 passed to (more or less) citywide agreement. Thanks to Josh Trujillo for the assignment for The Seattle Post-Intelligencer.  Enjoy!


From right to left, Matt Farler, Andrew Hopkins, Allison Miller and Austin Derck all scream in unison as President Barack Obama's projected win flashes across a TV tuned to CCN on election night Tuesday, November 6, 2012, at Neumos on Capitol Hill in Seattle, Wash. Crowds flocked to return parties hosted by a number of bars in the area to wait out final ballot results. In addition to President Barack Obama's reelection, Referendum 74 and I-502 were both passed in Washington state.
