This year's election date is November 3rd, 2015. Odd year elections mean lots of local issues and candidates on the ballot. To help you prepare and inform your choice, we'd like to tell you about some issues and elected offices you'll be voting on and some ways to learn more.
One issue is a King County measure called "Best Starts for Kids", a six-year levy funding programs to improve the well-being of children, youth, families and communities. The League of Women Voters is holding a forum on this issue and other local measures on Monday, October 5th from 7 to 9PM at the Mt. Baker Community Club, 2811 Mt Rainier Dr S. in Seattle. No RSVP is required. We will provide more information on this measure as the election approaches.
Also up for election are four of the seven Seattle School Board positions. The District continues to grow, and the elected School Board positions oversee District operations and decide on many aspects of District funding, making them critical to what happens in our District. There is also a League of Women Voters forum with the School Board candidates on Thursday October 8th from 7 to 8:30PM at Seattle First Baptist Church, 1111 Harvard Ave. RSVP's are not required. We will also provide more information on the candidates in these races closer to the election.
