Meet the Writers: Mapping Seattle’s New Political Landscape

Join Crosscut's Benjamin Anderstone and Knute Berger as they dissect new data from Anderstone's voter pattern analysis and weigh the impact of Seattle's new City Council districts on both civic engagement and campaign strategies.  

Think "Districts 101", where Ben and Knute explore the new political ground game, debut a new political glossary, highlight class and ethnic voting differences and ponder what it means to be conservative in Seattle.
