Seattle: How to use your democracy vouchers
On January 3, $100 worth of "Democracy Vouchers" will be arriving in the mailboxes of registered voters and lawful permanent residents of Seattle. These vouchers are the result of the successful Honest Elections Seattle Initiative 122 from 2015, which gives ordinary people a stronger voice in our government and limits the power of big money in Seattle elections.
Thursday's protest at Reichert's office was, in part, organized and promoted by the Seattle-based, Democratic-allied activist group Fuse Washington.
