ACRS Democracy Voucher Phone Banking
April 26 – 29, 5:30pm
Help ACRS increase the civic voice of Asian and Pacific Islander community members! Participate in phone banking to help promote Democracy Voucher usage among our communities. Every Seattle resident receives four of these vouchers worth $25 each that can be used to support local candidates running for local office. They are an important, innovative yet often overlooked method of civic engagement. During each phone bank, nonpartisan information about democracy vouchers will be shared, including what they are, who they can support, and how to return them. No experience is required.

Are you excited about getting big money out of politics? The Seattle Democracy Voucher program helps grassroots candidates by making donating to campaigns accessible to everyone. Every Seattle resident over 18 gets $100 to donate to the local candidate of their choice. This program was started in 2017, and this year candidates for City Council, Mayor, and City attorney are eligible. However, only about 8% of people donated their vouchers last year. That’s why we’re getting the word out.
