An Epic Drama of Adventure and Exploration to Choose our City’s Mayor

Doors Open at 7 pm

Candidate Survivor is the Biggest, Bestest, and Sexiest Candidate Forum in Seattle (dare we say the universe?).

The Washington Bus, The Stranger, Capitol Hill Block Party, and Neumos are proud to present the fourth-ever Candidate Survivor.

As the August 1st primary draws near, Candidate Survivor will give young Seattleites a fresh look at the top 8-voted mayoral candidates you want to hear from, as voted upon by Stranger readers.

Candidate Survivor gives you the power to decide who stays on stage and who goes. That’s right, the audience will be voting, via text, to determine which mayoral candidate will survive.

Check out scenes from 2013’s event.

The Washington Bus makes politics engaging, effective and fun. The Bus puts young Washingtonians in the driver’s seat and gives them the tools to be organizers, legislators, and leaders.
