The primary is pivotal for the direction of Seattle City Council. All seven of Seattle’s District seats are up for election:

  • 45 candidates are running across the seven districts.
  • District 3 has the most candidates competing.
  • Voters casting ballots in the primary will whittle down the numerous candidates to two finalists for each District who will compete in the general election.

Deadline to vote in the primary election: August 1.

Ballots for the primary go out in mid-July.

Deadline to vote in the general election: November 7. 

This forum is sponsored by the Eastlake Community Council.
