SEATTLE — With what looks to be the imminent passage of Charter Amendment 19, Seattle residents will soon vote for a council member that represents their neighborhood.

Previously, all council members were voted from at large positions. Now, residents will vote from one of their seven council districts.

The council map was created by Dr. Richard Morrill, the Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of Washington. Boundaries follow neighborhood lines as much as possible, and all district populations are the same.

Residents will vote for a council member from their respective districts beginning in 2015.
