If you are a registered lobbyist who submits monthly L-2 reports, you report any contributions that you make to Washington state candidates. For lobbyists who live in Seattle, those reports should include any democracy vouchers they use to donate to City Council candidates.  

Report the democracy voucher on the monthly lobbyist report, as you would any other campaign donation. A campaign voucher counts as a $25 contribution, so if you give a City Council candidate just one, you may include it with your non-itemized contribution sum for the month, with your own name as “Employer.” 

If you give a candidate more than one voucher, or a voucher and another contribution on the same day, enter that as an itemized contribution from you.
