How to empower your vote this election season

For the first time in our city's history, Seattle will be divided into seven districts, each gaining a corresponding seat on the City Council. It's up to the voters to decide who will take these new individual district seats. Seattle CityClub created a 2015 Elections Guide with resources and information that can inform your vote. 

Warm up, Seattle! 5 ways to welcome new Seattleites

Nearly 15,000 people resettled in Seattle in 2014, making Seattle the third fastest growing city in the nation that year. However, if there were 15,000 newcomers, then there were about 653,000 seasoned Seattle residents. As part of Seattle CityClub’s #NiceNeighbor Campaign, here are a few quick tips for seasoned Seattle residents to welcome newcomers and make Seattle a safer, warmer place for everybody.

Think you are a nice neighbor? How you can improve your community this summer

Seattle CityClub teamed up with the Seattle Police Department on the annual Seattle Night Out Against Crime to promote neighborliness and thaw the “Seattle Freeze.” This night provides an opportunity for neighbors to close off their streets, hold block parties, meet new neighbors and build community.

INITIATIVES & ACTION

Informed voters are empowered voters.  Seattle CityClub created an Elections 2015 Guide to provide resources that will connect you with the information and people you need this election season.  This toolkit shows you how to host candidate forums and provides a listing of debates in each Seattle district. Register for our own debate on July 15 where you will have a chance to shape questions for candidates running for at large positions 8 and 9.
