Youth voters shine at The Stranger’s 36th District Forum

A crowd of liberal, tipsy youth gathered Monday to evaluate candidates in one of the most politically active districts in the state. 

The young, loud and progressive of Legislative District 36 gathered for beer, laughter and very little standing room at Belltown’s Spitfire Monday evening to scrutinize candidates for the 36th LD’s Candidate Forum, hosted by The Stranger.

The six candidates battled it out “Weakest Link” game show-style for a district that hasn’t elected a Republican since the early 1980s. The district, which includes Magnolia, Phinney Ridge, Queen Anne and parts of Ballard, Belltown, Greenwood and Fremont, holds the highest number of registered voters in the state.
