Your ballot will be here soon…are you ready? This month, YPN is here to help you make connections AND get up to speed before you vote.

In addition to meeting young professionals from around the city, you'll get the scoop on three issues that voters will weigh in on this November: Seattle's Families, Education, Preschool and Promise Levy, a statewide ban on new local taxes on groceries, and a statewide carbon fee. You'll get an overview of each issue and have the chance to ask questions about how these measures will affect your life and our community at large.

Seattle FEPP-Families, Preschool and Promise Levy: The Families, Education, Pre-School and Promise Levy is the City of Seattle's levy to support equitable education so all learners, from birth to graduation, can reach their full potential.

I-1634: I-1634 would ensure that groceries are protected from any new or increased local tax, fee or assessment.

I-1631: I-1631 would be a first step to ensure clean air and clean water for everyone in Washington state.
