Today we announced changes to how votes are counted for Alliance Council. This is at the heart of what we mean by Democracy in Sports.

As an Alliance Member – voting is one of the fastest and easiest ways to participate in Democracy in Sports.

Before you start you will need:

  • Your Alliance Membership Number – also known as your Season Ticket Account Number.
  • Email address connected with this Alliance Membership.

Note: your Alliance Membership number or Season Ticket Account number is in the SoundersFC App under MatchPass, on your printed MatchPass or contact your Ticket Rep.

Voting is hosted and managed through The Club. In order to vote first go to the voting site. You can access this directly at https://vote.soundersfc.com or by navigating through the Sounders FC website. Supporters – Democracy In Sports – Nominate and Vote.

Note: the Login/Sign up button on the front page of Sounders FC website is for the MLS affiliated website – it’s worth doing – but won’t help you with nomination or voting.

Once at the Nomination and Voting page you will need to login. This is where your email address associated with your Alliance Membership or Season Ticket is required. You will also need your Account Number.

You will see a list of Available Ballots. This is where all election and votes will be listed – including GM Vote Of Confidence, Alliance Council elections, Constitution Ratification etc.

To vote on the Alliance Constitution – click on Vote Now under “Alliance Constitution Ratification Vote” – review the ballot options, Vote and confirm your selection.

To vote for Alliance Council nominees – click Vote Now. Review the list of Alliance Council nominees, read their bios, talk to them at a game – and then click Choose to vote. Simple.
