Think Globally, Vote Locally. Seattle Democracy Vouchers are increasing voter turnout because candidates now have an opportunity to run on grassroots funding, and this is a portal of entry into politics for individuals who represent us, our neighbors, friends, coworkers, and families. The real ones.
Progressive candidates can only move up on the political food chain if they are elected locally. On the local level, there is no electoral college, your vote is… your vote. Although Greens and other Alternative Party candidates are largely excluded from participation in national politics, our local elections matter because the Grassroots is where we live, where we can strengthen our community, and where regenerative solutions for a sustainable future can begin to take shape.
