What does a candidate have to do to "qualify" for the Democracy Voucher Program?
Candidates must "qualify" for the Democracy Voucher Program before they are able to redeem Democracy Vouchers to fund their campaigns. Candidates listed as "pending" are in the process of qualifying.

Candidates must complete a "qualifying process" by collecting a certain number of qualifying signatures and minimum $10 contributions from Seattle residents.

City Council at-large candidates must collect at least 400 qualifying signatures and contributions and City Attorney candidates must collect at least 150 qualifying signatures and contributions to qualify.
