The map you see at left provides the exact location and boundaries of each of the 7 districts created once voters approve our measure in 2013.

The initial district boundaries for the 7 districts were created by Dr. Richard Morrill, Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of Washington. The boundaries follow neighborhood lines and geographic features as much as possible. 2010 Census data was used to balance population between the districts, just like in the recent redistricting at the state and federal level. No district differs in population from any other district by more than one percent. District boundaries will be adjusted after each full Census (the next one is in 2020) by a broadly representative commission. This "redistricting" is similar to what happens at the state and federal level after each full Census.

When this initiative is passed, starting in 2015 you will be electing -- for the first time --a Councilmember who actually lives in and represents your District.

November 2013
Vote on this 7-2 proposal

2015
Vote 7 District Councilmembers to four-year terms

Vote 2 At-Large Councilmembers to two-year terms

2017
Vote 2 At-Large Councilmembers to four-year terms (Also Mayor and City Attorney)

2019
Vote 7 District Councilmembers to four-year terms

2021
Vote 2 At-Large Councilmembers to four-year terms (Also Mayor and City Attorney)
 

In 2015, voters from all seven districts will elect their district representative to a four year term.  Voters that year also will elect two "at large" councilmembers but they each will serve a "starter" term of two years. Then, in 2017, and every four years thereafter, those elected to the "at large" seats will be assigned to their regular four year terms. 

It means in one election cycle, voters will choose their Mayor, City Attorney, and at large councilmembers, then two years later in the "off year" cycle, all voters will get to choose their district council representative.

See the sidebar above right for an outline of the next five elections under this system. A similar table of the next five elections is here.
