Election Day is almost here, and with seven of nine Seattle City Council seats up for election, your vote on Nov. 7 will shape the future of Seattle. And no matter what neighborhood you live in, downtown is on the ballot. We encourage you to read our Candidate Scorecard and learn how contenders align with our priorities for the center city.
In addition to Seattle City Council races, another significant issue on the ballot is the renewal of Seattle’s Housing Levy. The burden of Seattle’s soaring housing costs falls hardest on our low-income neighbors, working families and people of color. Passing this seven-year Housing Levy will allow us to preserve our single-most-effective tool to improve housing stability and equity: advancing individual and community health, safety and wellbeing. DSA has endorsed the levy renewal and urges a yes vote.
