This online King County Video Voters' Guide is designed to make information about the November General Election more accessible, and assist you in making an informed choice.

This is an all-mail election. Instead of going to a polling place, ballots will be sent to all registered voters. You may return your ballot by mail, or by returning it to one of the 43 ballot drop box locations around King County. 

The Video Voters’ Guide includes information on the countywide ballot issue concerning a Levy Lid Lift for Veterans, Seniors and Vulnerable Populations as well as statements from candidates in races for King County Executive, King County Council and the Port of Seattle.
