If you came to Election Trivia Night Thursday you would know the answer.  Then again, hopefully you know the answer anyway! 

The crowd was lively, our emcee was hilarious and everyone from political know-it-alls to first time voters learned something new about the upcoming election. 

     

Did you miss out on Elections Trivia?  Fear not, we have three more ways for your and your civically inclined self to get connected:

  • Conversation on Public Trust – Tues 11/2, 6-7pm at Amber in Belltown (1st & Bell)
  • Knowledge as Power Training – Tues 11/16, 6-8pm at Uptown Espresso (4th & Wall)
  • Confused by the things that are on your ballot?  Check out the site below for some resources that help explain those tricky measures, candidates and specifics on voting in King County.

Both events are free and open to anyone who is interested, no matter your political knowledge or experience!  They’re great ways to test the waters.  Or, if you’re rather seasoned and knowledgeable then they’re great ways for you to share the wealth.

Thank you to our partners that co-sponsored trivia with us: King County Young Democrats, King County Young Republicans, Knowledge As Power, The Municipal League, and Washington State Society Cascade.  Many thanks to Spitfire for hosting the event amidst several important sporting events. 

Of course the largest thanks goes to our incredible Election Committee volunteers – without whom we would not have had such wonderful trivia questions!  You are political rock stars: Megan Coppersmith, Tony Hutter, Katherine Fountain Mackinnon, Peter Graves, Calvin Lee and Neely Olsen.

Get your vote on.  Your ballot needs to be postmarked by Tues, 11/2!
