Welcome to the 1999 Seattle Primary Voters' Guide.
The City of Seattle provides the Video Voters' Guide and Primary Voters' Pamphlet on line to (1) help you fully participate in the election process by volunteering or contributing to a campaign, and (2) to assist you in making informed choices for the City positions that appear on the September 14, 1999 Primary Election ballot.

Video Voters' Guide
The Seattle Ethics & Elections Commission and King County Records & Elections have jointly coordinated a Video Voters' Guide for the primary. 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, which runs about one and a three-quarter hours, will be shown at various times on Seattle Cable, TV/Sea Channel 21/28, King County Cable, CTV Channel 22/55, KCTS Channel 9 and on several other city's cable access networks. The broadcast schedule for this video can be found by clicking the appropriate link on the left side of this page.
Streaming video of the Video Voters' Guide is also available by clicking "View On-Line!" on the left side of this page, or by clicking on any candidate's name.
On-Line Voters' Pamphlet
Also available here is an on-line version of the Primary Voters' Pamphlet. Each candidate for Seattle City Council 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 the name on the left.
