- Am so glad I don't live in the city of Seattle, where they are now f...orcing speech through the dishonest election initiative. Now people are forced through their property taxes to fund politicians they don't like.
- Hey how about you spend resources on trying to get I-122 passed inst...ead of sending me some kind of shaming bullshit message about my voting record. I did vote in general elections in 2010 and 2012 I just didn't live in this passive aggressive state so you wouldn't know. Not sure who thought that the "Official Voting Record" mailing was good idea but I'm giving those consultants a "Below Average" rating and reminding you that "as a [campaign advisor] it's important that you set an example and [try not to piss off your potential supporters on the eve of a close vote]."

What are Democracy Vouchers and how can you use them?
Have you gotten your Democracy Vouchers in the mail? KUOW Public Radio explains how to use them.
Starting today, Seattle voters and lawful permanent residents start getting in the mail their $100 in Democracy Vouchers! These vouchers are the result of the successful Honest Elections Seattle Initiative 122 that passed in 2015. Democracy Vouchers are a new tool we all have access to, giving each of us a stronger voice in government and limiting the influence of big money interests in our local elections. In past local elections, less than 2% of Seattleites gave to a political campaign. Now, everyone is a potential small donor.
"On Tuesday, Seattle’s grand experiment with providing eligible residents $100 worth of vouchers that municipal candidates can use to fund their campaigns will begin going out." #SeattleVotes
