Let's get ready to rumbuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuhhhlllllll on the internet. ANTHONY KEO

The planet is melting, Covid has wrecked our lives and our livelihoods, our budgets are full of holes, and our Democratic Republic has selected YOU to send a bunch of politicians to Olympia to save us from the brink.

To help you choose your fighter, The Stranger is proud to announce Stranger Debates: Seattle's Only Candidate Forum.

Watch Seattle-area statehouse candidates face off in a series of head-to-head debates hosted by a panel of foul-mouthed, self-medicating Stranger reporters. From the safety of their own intentionally decorated home offices, candidates will squirm through a gantlet of tough policy questions, fantasy character-building exercises, a freakin' mini-quest, and a totally low-rent online talent show. After all that, you'll vote on the night's winner.

Break out your calendars and check out our list of contenders:
