Time to use your Democracy Vouchers!

A new opportunity for Seattle residents this year are
Democracy Vouchers
which were sent to all registered voters in January. You can use the publicly-financed vouchers to contribute up to $100 in $25 increments to candidates for city council and city attorney. Candidates who are participating in this program agree to limit their campaign fundraising and spending and participate in at least three public forums.

Click here to see which candidates have qualified to accept donations in the form of Democracy Vouchers.

Can't find your vouchers? Please call (206) 727-8855 or e-mail democracyvoucher@seattle.gov to request replacement vouchers. You will be asked to provide your name, date of birth, and mailing address.

Newly registered? You should be getting them soon - but you can contact the Seattle elections department to verify.

Legal permanent residents as well as registered voters are eligible to participate! Click here to check eligibility and apply.

They Represent You: Directory of Elected Officials
The 2017 edition of our "TRY" directory is so popular this year we had to print more! It contains contact information for local elected officials as well as the county council, school boards, Washington state officials, legislative committees, political parties and more!

View the TRY 2017 online; items highlighted in yellow are changes from the January print edition.
