Seattle librarians now provide fact-checking for 2012 Living Voters Guide

Living Voters Guide

The Seattle Public Library is partnering with Seattle CityClub to support the Living Voters Guide, an interactive voter's guide for all Washingtonians to exchange thoughts and opinions. The Library will provide fact-checking reference service on state-wide ballot measures for users of the Living Voters Guide.


The content of the Living Voters Guide is written by citizens, for citizens. Participants submit pros and cons on ballot measures to share their perspectives with others.


Living Voters Guide users can now request fact-checking assistance from The Seattle Public Library. To ask a librarian to check the facts of a claim on the Living Voters Guide, click the "Ask a Librarian" button available at the bottom of each post. Librarians will verify the content of flagged claims and post fact-checking results, with citations, within 48 hours.


The Living Voters Guide is presented by Seattle CityClub and UW Engage.


For more information, call the Library at 206-386-4636 or Ask a Librarian.
