Thanks for raising the issue, Connie.
King Conservation District elections are under the radar because they don't
appear on a regular ballot.
As a result, few people know about or vote in these elections.
The good news is that there's currently a bill in the state legislature to
get KCD elections on the ballot.
This would not only greatly increase their visibility and accessibility, but
likely improve voter participation in them as well.
You can weigh in virtually to Oppose or Support this bill and/or add
The bill's hearing is scheduled for Jan 27 @ 10 a.m. , so positions and/or
comments should be logged prior to and in time for that.
To reiterate Connie's call, you can also vote online in the KCD Board of
Supervisors election and read candidate's statements at

election. We should be doing better. - Connie, Seattle
