Two local elections in Seattle have made Ballotpedia‘s list of Top 10 elections to watch in November 2015, drawing attention to “potentially game-changing elections” across the U.S.

In a recent announcement, Ballotopedia pointed to these Seattle races:

  • Seattle Public Schools elections (2015)
    Four seats up for grabs “as the district wrestles with several issues connected to state legislation.”
  • Seattle City Council
    “All nine city council seats will be up for election, and the seven district members will serve four-year terms [marking] a significant moment in the city’s political history.”

At issue, according to The Seattle Times (article): “Seattle schools have one of [the] nation’s largest equity gaps.”
