On April 7th, 2019, the Washington State Democratic Central Committee — a group of elected volunteers who govern the Washington State Democratic Party — will vote on whether to continue with a caucus system or switch to a primary system to determine how many delegates are won by each of the presidential candidates.

But before that happens, the Washington State Democratic Party is holding a 30-day public comment period to get input from Democrats across the state. Details about both plans are available online, along with timelines, FAQs, and more. Democrats across the state are encouraged to read the plans, vote on which they prefer and, if they want, leave comments or questions.

Says Washington State Democratic Party Chair Tina Podlodowski: “These are detailed plans that address timing, accessibility, and more. Our goal for 2020 is to run the most successful caucus or primary ever in Washington state. So for the next 30 days, we are asking Democrats across the state to read the plans, leave comments or questions, and tell us which plan they prefer.”

The 30-day public comment period for Washington state’s 2020 Delegate Selection and Affirmative Action Plan begins March 5, 2019, and goes through April 4, 2019.
