The Washington State Democratic Party will be holding its caucuses to choose its nominee on March 26th at 10 AM. It will be Washington Democrats’ opportunity to make their voices heard on who should be our next President.
Anyone who will be 18 by November 8, 2016 and affirms they are a Democrat on Caucus Day is eligible to participate.
The 11th Legislative District Democrats will be hosting 8 caucus sites for our voters to participate. Voters must show up to the correct caucus site in order to participate. If you’d like to vote, here’s what you need to do:
- Find your caucus site and pre-register: https://www.demcaucus.com/register. The site will give you a registration form that you must print out and bring to your caucus site. If you lose your form, you can always fill out a new one at the site. This is your way of skipping the registration line. We will not have printouts of your pre-registered forms on site. Your caucus site and the address will be on the top of your registration form.
- Show up to your caucus site before the caucus is scheduled to begin. 9:30am is a good target time. You must show up to the correct caucus site that you were given in step 1. You will not be able to caucus at another site.
- Caucus! Your precinct will decide which Presidential candidate will get delegates from your group of neighbors. You will also be picking those delegates that will go on to the Legislative District Caucus and the King County Convention. Those delegates will eventually decide who goes to the Congressional District Caucuses, the State Convention, and the Democratic National Convention.
Remember: these are all your neighbors and fellow democrats. Be respectful, listen, converse, and have fun!
- If you can’t show up to the caucus because of religious reasons, military duty, a disability, or a conflicting work schedule, fill out a surrogate affadivit form and send it to the Washington State Democrats.

Renton, Washington, July 17, 2015 – On July 15, 2015, the 11th Legislative District Democrats found a piece of campaign literature from the Monique Taylor-Swan for Renton City Council campaign that showed our organization endorsed her.
