What your voters’ guide won't tell you about the 2016 election


From the wide-open lobby-lands of Olympia to the lush cash-forests of Seattle, a complex ecosystem of money and influence shapes how we vote — and how we live — in Washington state. Most of us only catch glimpses of it, when politicians display their plumage in TV ads or glossy mailers.

KUOW's Field Guide to Influence lets you see the money flowing into every campaign in the state. Is out-of-state money playing a big role? Big business? Unions?

KUOW’s Field Guide to Influence updates constantly, and we’ll be adding our reports and analysis as the November 8 election draws closer, so you can stay informed. And please tell us what you find, too!
