Democracy Voucher Program


Every Seattle citizen and Green Card holder is eligible to receive four (4) $25 Democracy Vouchers to donate to a city council candidate of their choice.  Registered voters generally received their vouchers in the mail in February.

Want to assign your vouchers to John?


Fill them out with John Lombard’s name, your signature, and the date, and return them in the postage-paid envelope they came with, or via regular mail to:

City of Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission

PO Box 35196

Seattle, WA 98124

Can’t find your vouchers?

If you are eligible for vouchers (you are a Seattle resident, at least 18 years old, and a U.S. citizen or green card holder) but didn’t receive them, you can apply to participate in the program here.

If you received your Democracy Vouchers but lost them, you can get replacement vouchers or assign your vouchers online here.

What are the rules for participating candidates?

Candidates participating in the Democracy Voucher Program have accepted the following requirements:

  • A cap on donations: The largest regular donation (not counting vouchers) that John can receive from any one entity is $250 (as opposed to $500 if he was not participating)
  • A limit on campaign spending: John’s campaign cannot spend more than $75,000 for the primary election, or more than $75,000 for the general election
  • John must participate in at least three candidate forums or debates before the primary election, and three more before the general election
