Immigrant Voting Task Force Report
This report looks at the issues that affect civic and political participation by immigrant communities in the City of Seattle. The City is working to ensure that immigrant residents are part of our vibrant democracy and is using innovative and community-driven ideas to overcome challenges to civic participation. This inclusive approach - driven and supported by Mayor Edward B. Murray and the Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs - is highlighted in the creative and practical recommendations developed by the Immigrant Voting Task Force.
We hope the report will be a catalyst for civic engagement and increased voter participation within immigrant communities. This report may also spark ideas for other jurisdictions across America to break down barriers for their new immigrant voters as well.
