Description of each of the data fields:

Voucher Numbers

Each Democracy Voucher is assigned a unique tracking number.

Voucher Status

Received - A Democracy Voucher assigned to an eligible candidate is considered "received" once it has been received by the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission. The signature on the voucher is pending verification.


Accepted - A Democracy Voucher is considered "accepted" if the signature on the voucher has been verified by either King County Elections or the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission. If the signature on the voucher does not match, the voucher remains unassigned and the resident is contacted.

Redeemed - A Democracy Voucher moves from the "accepted" status to "redeemed" once the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission has issued a check to the campaign. Vouchers may only be redeemed by campaigns in the "qualified" status.

Vouchers sent to the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission may take up to 10 business days to reach the status of "accepted." Please contact us for further details about a particular voucher.

Assigned Campaign

Each Democracy Voucher is "assigned" to a participating campaign.

Campaign Status

Candidates are listed as "pending" once they have signed a pledge and indicated their intention to participate in the Democracy Voucher Program. Candidates may collect qualifying signatures, contributions, and Democracy Vouchers.

Candidates are listed as "qualified" once they have gathered the required number of qualifying signatures and contributions. The Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission will audit the qualifying signatures and contributions. Candidates may receive funds from the Democracy Vouchers assigned to them after they have "qualified."

Learn more about the qualifying process for candidates on the candidates' page.

Accepted Date

This is the date the Democracy Voucher staff confirmed the validity of the voucher.

Redeemed Date

This is the date the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission issued a check to the "qualified" campaigns.
