The 11th Legislative District Caucus shall be held on Saturday, March 24, 2018 commencing at 10:00 am PST, at Carpenter’s Local Labor Union, 231 Burnett Ave N Renton WA, 98057.
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.
