Candidates for seven Seattle City Council district positions will vie for support in September and October in voter-engaged debates hosted by Seattle CityClub. The events, which are free and open to the public, will also be broadcast and reported widely thanks to partnerships with local media.

Each debate will take place in a venue within or very close to Council district boundaries. Voters who cannot participate in person will be able to watch or listen to the debates as they are either streamed live or available post-event on KUOW (NPR), Crosscut, KCTS (PBS), KING (NBC), KOMO (ABC) and Seattle Channel, as well as read coverage of the debates in The Seattle Times.

“We are grateful to our media partners for providing extensive access to debates for voters, in-kind production support, and knowledgeable journalists to serve as moderators and interviewers,” said Teresa Moore, Executive Director of Seattle CityClub, a nonprofit and nonpartisan organization that informs and inspires civic engagement.

“By bringing candidates and voters together to learn about public issues and explore differing approaches to solve them, we empower people with knowledge in an atmosphere of civil public discourse.”

While tickets to attend the debates are free, seating is limited and registration is required.
