File for PCO (5/14-5/18/2018)

Candidate filing week this year is May 14 -18.  Currently there are 94 offices subject to election, including a U.S. senate seat, U.S. representatives, state senators and representatives, Prosecuting Attorney, and various judicial positions. We anticipate close to 300 candidates will file for these offices.
Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) positions are also up for election this year, and we project we’ll receive approximately 2,000 PCO filings in addition to the candidates for the aforementioned offices. As always, we anticipate the majority of candidates will file online and we have created brief video tutorials on how to use the online filing systems.  Our office will be updating the list of who has filed at least twice a day during filing week, by 12 noon and by 6 p.m. The final list of candidates in ballot order will be posted on Tuesday, May 22, after the deadline for candidates to withdraw has passed.”

You can file for PCO here: https://www.kingcounty.gov/depts/elections/for-candidates/online-pco-filing.aspx

Online PCO filing is available 24 hours a day starting May 14, 2018, at 9 a.m. and ending on May 18, 2018, at 4 p.m.

The WA State Democratic Party revisits and updates the statewide party platform every two years. In years without a Presidential election, this is the focus of their work and the convention cycle is how to determine what edits to make to the platform, pass resolutions, and ratify the final document at the State Convention. The 11th LD is using State party platform, which is located here.

The Legislative District Caucuses are held to elect the State Convention delegates and alternates. At the State Convention, elected and automatic delegates are the voting body of the party for the duration of the meeting.

The Caucus will be open starting at 10:00 am for checking people in, allowing people to have the time to read the materials available, and discussing topics with other attendees. The Caucus will commence at 11:00 am. We will adjourn at 3:00pm – if not earlier – provided that delegate elections have been completed.
To vote at the Legislative District Caucus an individual must be a resident, registered voter in the 11th Legislative District and affirm that they are a Democrat by signing on the registration sheet, and agree to public record of their attendance at the meeting.
Registered voters include all registered voters and any 17 year old who will be eligible to vote on or before November 6, 2018. Registered voters also include any eligible individual who completes a voter registration form while signing in to attend the Legislative District Caucus. Forms will be available in several languages.
If you are elected as a delegate/alternate and accept, you are expected to attend the Washington State Convention in Wenatchee, Fri-Sat June 15-16th.

You can pre-register for the Caucus here.
