CD10 Candidate Forum and Straw Poll

Join Counted for our first official event! We're kicking things off with a candidate forum and straw poll for Washington's 10th Congressional District.

Our straw poll will be a little different—participants will have three ballots each. One will be a traditional choose-one ballot, like those currently used in elections around the state. Another will be an approval voting ballot, which looks similar to a traditional ballot, but allows you to vote for as many candidates as you'd like. And another will be a score voting ballot, where voters can rate each candidate on a 0-5 scale.

All 2018 10th CD candidates have been invited. Independent Centrist Nancy Dailey Slotnick, Independent Progressive Tamborine Borrelli, Republican Joseph Brumbles, and a representative from Democrat Denny Heck's campaign are participating.

This event is free and open to the public.

Only eligible voters in the 10th Congressional District will be allowed to vote in the straw poll. Check your registration status and find your districts. We're also partnering with the League of Women Voters of Thurston County to offer in-person voter registration at this event. All are welcome to attend and observe.

12:30 p.m.: Doors open. Sign in, mingle with the candidates, and enjoy drinks and light snacks.
1:00 p.m.: Candidate forum—come learn more about your congressional candidates.
2:10 p.m.: Straw poll and vote tabulation—see the process and experience the benefits of approval and score voting first-hand.
