This guide won't tell you who to vote for, but should help you make your choices.

We're a nonprofit so we don't make political endorsements of any kind. What we do is publicly driven journalism. To create this guide, we developed a multiple-choice survey to determine where candidates fell on a spectrum of opinions. Those answers — and candidate bios — make up the meat of this guide. The potatoes are tips and links that will help you do things like register to vote and turn in your ballot, as well as learn about Washington's unique systems. Read more on our methodology below.

What's at stake?
