The Washington Bus

The Washington Bus engages tomorrow's leaders on their own terms, and empowers them through education, civic and cultural engagement, and hands-on democracy. We take control of, and responsibility for, our own future by making sure our friends and peers are registered to vote, know the issues, and fill out their ballots.

Depending on where you live, you may have the following city races on your ballot.

  • VOTE YES

    Vote YES on Proposition 1

  • Seattle is one of the fastest growing cities in the country, which is pushing rent and real estate prices higher every month. As a result, many working families, seniors, and young people are struggling to keep a roof over their head. Many are forced to live far away from where they work - making traffic worse - or leave Seattle altogether just to afford their rent. We must do better.

    Seattle's Proposition 1 is $290 million replacement and expansion of the existing affordable housing levy that would cost the average homeowner $122 per year. This critically important proposition would build 2,150 new affordable apartments and provide emergency rental help for 4,500 families on the brink of being homeless. Vote YES on Proposition 1 to ensure Seattle remains a place where working people, seniors, and young people can afford to live!
