TIME TO VOTE! Which of 9 West Seattle/ South Park park/street projects should get funded?

Above (or in PDF here), you can see and learn about the nine West Seattle/South Park park/street projects that made the ballot for the first-ever Your Voice, Your Choice “participatory budgeting” vote. We first told you about the voting plan back in January, followed by the project-suggestion period in February, and then the final 10 for the West Seattle/South Park area in April (from 211 suggestions). Now the official ballots are out with nine projects in each city-council district; you can vote for three. $285,000 is allotted to each district (ours is #1), and that will cover three projects. Voting starts today and goes through the end of the month. You can start the online voting process by going here – or look for in-person voting at these upcoming West Seattle/South Park events and meetings listed here and below:

    I tried to vote via mobile, but my phone number was rejected. I wonder if it auto-rejects non 206 numbers?

      I’m checking with our contact tomorrow – anybody else encounter anomalies, let me know. I usually try to test surveys/other online stuff before publishing but in this case I only got as far as requesting a verification code before having to go ahead and publish the story in an available window … so didn’t test all the way through. – TR

        I DID manage to make it through on desktop a bit ago, so not sure if it was a temporary issue, or a browser issues, or something else. Funny that it made it through on desktop rather than mobile, with requiring a mobile number and all.

Sorry, comment time is over.
