U.S. Supreme Court won’t hear challenge to Seattle’s ‘democracy vouchers’

Ben Larson, left, and Kelabe Tewolde sign some of their eligible democracy vouchers outside the University District Trader Joes after hearing the pitch from council candidate Shaun Scott, center.  Scott and his campaign team work the University District Trader Joes, and encouraged people so inclined to sign Democracy Vouchers if they were so inclined.

The state Supreme Court last year upheld the program. Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes said the court's refusal to take the case means the constitutionality of the voucher program is settled.
