Did you vote? Take our City Inside/Out poll

Voters in the state`s 43rd Legislative District in Seattle face an interesting choice on the fall ballot. Should they re-elect Democratic State House Speaker Frank Chopp to an 11th term? Or should they support Socialist Alternative candidate Jess Spear? Chopp won overwhelmingly in the primary but says he is not taking a November victory for granted. We help you break down where the candidates stand on affordable housing, a higher minimum wage, transportation and education funding. How progressive does Seattle want its future to be? The candidates join us for an in-studio debate.
