Those pumping corporate and grassroots cash into the District 3 race for the Seattle City Council are getting their money’s worth. D3 is, again, out in the lead for voter turnout among Seattle’s seven districts.
According to the latest report from King County Elections, District 3 voters have already returned more than 5,000 ballots since they were mailed out last week — about 6.9% of the total 74,000 registered to vote across Capitol Hill, the Central District, First Hill, Madison Park, Montlake, and the nearby neighborhoods that make up the district.
In the August Primary, D3 also led the way, sniffing 50% turnout. The district has also added 1,000 registered voters since then, more than 30% of the city’s 3,500 “new” voters.
Ballots must be returned or post marked by 8 PM on November 5th. You don’t need a stamp to mail your ballot or you can turn it in at the drop box on Broadway at Seattle Central. More information on returning your ballot here.
