Democrats to hold caucuses

 

Democrats statewide will have an opportunity to help nominate a candidate for president of the United States at the state Democratic precinct caucuses, to be held Sunday, April 15 at locations across the state.

Voters can find the location of their caucus by entering their address at the state Democratic Party Caucus Finder at http://www.wa-democrats.org/caucuses

At the precinct caucuses, Democratic voters will technically vote for delegates and alternates to the party’s county and legislative district caucuses, which in turn will elect delegates and alternates to congressional district conventions. It is those congressional conventions that actually elect the 121 delegates and nine alternates who go to the national convention.

The precinct caucuses also vote for issues to be included in the party platform, which is finalized at the Democratic State Convention on June 1-3 in Seattle before moving on to the national convention.
