One of the most powerful ways to affect change is by voting.

We know that one of the most powerful ways to affect change is by voting, especially in local elections. The 2021 First Time Voter Guide was designed to help you learn how to activate one of your most important super powers by becoming the most confident voter you can be! That means: knowing which candidates and issues will be on the ballot, where you can go to find accurate information about them, and how to vote! Our hope is that this guide and webpage will answer any questions you have regarding the upcoming King County elections, and be a useful road map too guide you as you navigate your ballot — especially if this is your first time!  

On behalf of the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle, thank you for reclaiming your right to vote! Whether it’s your first time casting a ballot or your twentieth, your vote and your voice matter.
