Participation in Seattle’s Democracy Voucher Program: A Comparison of the 2017 and 2019 Election Cycles - Shared screen with speaker view
This is a link to the Democracy Voucher Report
Is that a public link, or has the report not yet been shared publicly?
Were there any differences in the education/awareness efforts (i.e. more efforts to educate the electorate) between the voucher program in 2017 versus 2019?
Please mention briefly where these districts are.
The link to the policy brief, once again
Additionally, do you have any thoughts on how the voucher program can better engage those populations that remain underrepresented in voting? (e.g. better communication to these populations, etc.)
Would you post this question into the Q&A box, please?
Amy - are you asking for Brian or Jennifer to answer the question about the district locations now?
Or, can you post the question in the Q&A box?
did you restrict your sample to people who lived in Seattle for both cycles? How do you know if people have really moved out of the city? for example, my son moved to LA and stopped voting in Seattle (since he registered there), but he still gets a ballot at my house.
Amy - can you post this question in the Q&A?
Also worth noting that HR1 has a voucher pilot program imbedded within it.
That was fantastic, thank you
Please put your comment in Q&A, if you don’t mind
Can you speak to the gaps in data that limit our ability to know the extent to which program shortfalls are a function of deficient implementation vs policy flaws vs a necessarily time-intensive process (ie, maybe it just takes time for political culture to shift as people become more acquainted with the program?)? It’s understandable that older, whiter, wealthier donors would use vouchers at a higher rate since they are already more engaged in the political process. How do we know if the increases we’re seeing among younger, BIPOC, working-class residents is comparatively “good” or “bad”?
Estevan, would you please post your comment to the Q&A? Then, everyone will see it!
She pronounces her name with a silent K, more like “Shama”
I don’t know if demographics of 2019 voters by candidate exist, but maybe you could proxy that with vote share by precinct? (for instance, for district 3: https://twitter.com/ccgilroy/status/1203888084955193344)
