2014 Caucuses and Conventions

The 2014 Caucuses and Conventions are your chance to influence the direction of our Party, shape our Party platform, and get involved with the Party as we prepare for the crucial 2014 elections.

The 2014 Caucus and Convention cycle contains three steps. Legislative District Caucuses will be held on either March 9th or April 12th, and attendees will elect delegates to the State Convention. County Conventions will meet on April 12th, and attendees will pass a county platform and county resolutions. The State Convention will be held on June 20th and 21st in Spokane, and will address resolutions, adopt a State Party Platform, conduct other party business.
