The Washington State Democratic Central Committee (WSDCC) is the body that conducts business for the Washington State Democratic Party. They hold meetings about once a quarter, where they pass resolutions, elect officers, and conduct other Party business. Every two years, the Washington State Democratic Party holds a State Convention, where delegates to the convention gather to conduct further Party business.

This page contains some of the documents produced by the WSDCC and State Convention delegates. These documents define the Washington State Democratic Party.

Code of Conduct

The Washington State Democratic Party is proud of the autonomy and discretion exercised solely by Democratic Legislative District Organizations and County Parties (“Local Party Organizations” or “LPOs”), which are separate entities from the State Party. The Washington State Democratic Party does not have oversight or control over LPOs. The Precinct Committee Officers and members of each LPO set their own organization’s processes and rules. While these LPO rules align with the standards and guidelines outlined by the State Party, the State Party does not control or operate any LPO. Because LPOs run themselves without interference or management from the State Party, LPOs are solely responsible for all reporting and compliance filings required by law. If members of an LPO have issues or concerns with how the organization is being run, they should bring those issues to the attention of the LPO Chair or proper authority, such as the Public Disclosure Commission.

*Please note: the 2024 Delegate Selection and Affirmative Action Plan has had technical revisions and updates since its passage on May 6, 2024. The full change-log of amendments to the plan over this period can be found here.
