A Seattle Times editorial published Monday asks for help from readers
who approve of the editorial board's support
of a Washington state referendum that will enshrine same-sex marriage in state law.
The editorial directs readers to a photo of a sign published in the Sunday print paper and a link to the photo. It then asks them to:
Take a photo of you, your partner or your family holding this sign and share it on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #IDo74. You can also email the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The paper has a photo gallery of people holding the sign
. The Seattle Times' editorial section, which is a finalist
for 2012 the Online News Association awards, has been experimenting with new ways of approaching editorials. Earlier this year, it published a "rap op-ed"
in response to local shootings.
