As ballots arrive in King County voters’ mailboxes, the county Video Voter’s Guide has returned to help residents guide their decisions before the Nov. 3 election.
Watch the guide on King County TV or on the Web.
The guide enables voters to hear directly from countywide candidates. Advocates for ballot issues are also featured in the guide. Every candidate and issue is allowed to present a two-minute statement.
The guide includes statements from candidates for county executive, assessor, County Council District 9, Port of Seattle Commission and from speakers on countywide ballot measures.
In the District 9 race, incumbent Reagan Dunn will face challenger Beverly Harison Tonda. District 9 includes unincorporated King County land south of Issaquah, as well as parts of Bellevue, Newcastle and Renton.
Through local government access channels, the guide is available to about 425,000 households. The guide is also distributed through many libraries.
Watch the Issaquah Video Voter Guide and hear from City Council candidates here. The guide includes statements from Position 5 candidates Maureen McCarry and Joan Probala, Position 7 candidates Tola Marts and Nathan Perea, and Councilwoman Eileen Barber, who is running unopposed for a second term.
