Infographic: Seattle’s Democracy Voucher Program

Seattle's "Democracy Voucher" program was designed to drive citizen engagement by providing  publicly funded "vouchers" or coupons that voters can sign over to candidates running for select local offices thus helping those candidates finance their campaigns, and allowing citizens who might normally not be involved in campaign financing to help shape the trajectory of the elections.

Check out this infographic that highlights the project's far-reaching implications.
