Q: How were the district boundaries drawn?
A: Charter Amendment 19 included the district boundaries in the initiative, which were based on population/census tracts.
Q: When will boundaries be redrawn and how?
A: As established by the voter-approved changes to the City Charter, in the fall of 2022 and every ten years after that, a five-member Districting Commission will be created to redraw the district boundaries (its members will be appointed by the Mayor and the City Council). To the extent practical, the redrawn district boundaries shall follow existing district boundaries, recognized waterways and geographic boundaries, and Seattle communities and neighborhoods.
Q: If I want to run for Seattle City Council, what do I need to do?
A: Seattle residents interested in running for City Council should visit the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission's Elections page and contact the Campaign Finance and Training staff early in their decision-making process to discuss campaign finance reporting obligations.
