3,150 SIGNATURES REFLECT PUBLIC SUPPORT AND VOLUNTEER BASE
Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant has received official notice from King County Elections that she succeeded in collecting enough valid signatures from Seattle District 3 registered voters to qualify for the ballot!
"I'm very grateful to our many volunteers who collected nearly three times as many signatures as the required amount (1,119 signatures) in only one month," said Sawant. "This demonstrates the widespread popular support for our campaign demands, such as rent control, and our unparalleled volunteer base."
Sawant is the only local incumbent candidate who collected signatures to qualify for the July primary election ballot. In contrast, the business-as-usual, corporate-funded candidates opted instead to pay the $1,119 filing fee.
Sawant is also the only City Councilmember who rejects donations from corporations and real estate developers. Instead she relies entirely on the support of ordinary workers and progressive organizations for donations and volunteers.
