Elections 2023

Seattle has local elections coming up this year, and there's a LOT on the menu.

Social housing is on the ballot in February, behavioral health is on the ballot in April, the housing levy is on the ballot this fall, and more than half the city council is up for grabs in August in November. 

As always, The Stranger is here to keep you in the know. Buckle up and dig in.
