Straw Poll Fundraiser

Event Details

Join us for a fun straw poll fundraiser one week prior to the 36th District Democrats endorsement meeting! At the end of the night one candidate will be named the straw poll champion.

Enjoy appetizers, drinks, and meet candidates competing for Seattle City Council Positions 8 & 9 in a causal setting.

​C​andidates will each have an opportunity to give a brief speech, followed by a Q&A session moderated by Hanna Brooks Olsen of Seattlish.

Entry is a suggested donation of $3 which includes voting tokens. Other tokens can be earned through fun games and by making additional donations to the 36th District Democrats at a specified rate. You also have the chance to submit a question for Q&A (and earn tokens) – so start thinking up some good ones!

We are also looking for event sponsors and volunteers! Sponsors will be recognized at the event. There are two sponsorship levels: $100 and $50. We always greatly appreciate your support. Email to sign up as a sponsor or volunteer.

The event is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend. RSVP today.

For more information, contact Nicole Gomez at or 206-310-7672.
