What if I did not use my Democracy Vouchers?
If you did not use your Democracy Vouchers for the 2017 election, you may recycle them. In 2019, the Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission will issue Seattle residents new Democracy Vouchers.

When was the last day to request new or replacement Democracy Vouchers?
November 30, 2017 was the last day to request and assign Democracy Vouchers to a candidate for the 2017 election cycle.

Can I still apply to receive Democracy Vouchers?
Yes. You may apply to receive Democracy Vouchers for the 2019 city elections.

If you are a registered voter, you do not need to apply and will automatically receive your vouchers.
