District-based City Council in Everett

LWVSC, along with DistrictsNow.org, is advocating for Districted Voting in the City of Everett. The purpose of this effort is to get an initiative on the November ballot for five City Council districts (see map) and two at-large positions.

How Can You Help?

  • Volunteer to gather signatures and register voters. (Signatures of about 9000 Everett voters are needed to get this initiative on the November ballot).
  • Donate money to pay for running the campaign. There are expenses such as postage and printing, website maintenance, etc. You can contribute at districtsnow.org.

The initiative seeks to address the disparity in representation on the City Council. Everett currently elects all council members at-large. Six out of seven council members live in the northern part of the city.

Look for members of the League of Women Voters of Snohomish County at the Farmers Markets this summer--Sundays in North Everett and Fridays at the Everett Mall. They will be seeking signatures for the petition to get an initiative on the November ballot. All petitions must be turned in to the City of Everett by September  10.

You must be a registered voter in the city of Everett to sign this petition. If you live within the city limits, but are not currently registered, we will have forms available for you to register on the spot so that you can add your signature to the petition.
