King County Elections and Seattle Foundation will award a total of $460,000 in grants to community-based organizations to provide either an ongoing campaign or events focused on one or more of the following:

  • Voter education or outreach informing underrepresented voters about how voting works in King County, such as who is eligible to vote, what is vote-by-mail, and democracy 101.
  • Voter registration activities where underrepresented communities work, play or connect.
  • Nonpartisan opportunities for communities to come together and educate themselves about what’s on the ballot.
  • Culturally appropriate technical assistance in navigating the voting process, such as helping voters change their address or language preference.
