Video Voters' Guide
The Seattle Ethics & Elections Commission and King County Records & Elections have jointly coordinated a Video Voters' Guide for this election. The video was produced by Seattle's TVSea and King County's CTV. Each candidate for King County Council, Seattle City Council, Seattle School Board and the Port of Seattle were given the opportunity to speak for two minutes about their candidacy. The full video will be shown at various times on Seattle Cable, TV/Sea Channel 21/28, King County Cable, CTV Channel 22/55 and on several other city's cable access networks.
Streaming video of the Video Voters' Guide is also available by clicking "Online Video Voters Guide" on the left side of this page, or by clicking on any candidate's name to the left.
On-Line Voters' Pamphlet
Also available here is an on-line version of the Voters' Pamphlet. Each candidate for City Office was given the opportunity to submit a 400 word statement about their candidacy, as well as a photo. You can find the photo and statement for each candidate by clicking their name on the left.
