It’s time for the 2014 Primary Election! Click the link below to find endorsements.

Primary ballots will be in the mail by Friday, July 18th, leading up to Primary Election Day on August 5th! 

Why should I vote?

Simply put: The Primary Election determines who will move on to the General Election in November. But even if there is no competitive race in your area, the Primary is a critical part of building momentum for a campaign. As a voter and concerned citizen, you know every election is important. It is essential that you participate in the Primary Election and send a message before the General Election on November 4th.

Your Primary ballot features critical races — for Congress, State Legislature, and local office — that will have a profound impact on our country and state. This year, it is our mission to re-elect our members of Congress, elect Democrats to seats held by Republicans, win the State Senate, and elect Democrats to the State House. 

You can be a part of this effort with your vote in the Primary Election.

How do I vote?

Washington is a vote-by-mail state where registered voters are sent their ballots in the mail. These ballots will be in the mail by July 18th.

After you receive your ballot, we encourage you to turn it in early to ensure that it is collected on time.

Ballots must either be postmarked by August 5th, turned into an accessible voting center during business hours, or returned to a ballot drop box by 8 p.m. on Election Day. 

It is important to remember to sign your ballot, as missing signatures are the leading causes of vote challenges.

If you have not yet registered to vote, it is not too late! You can still register in person at your county elections office by July 28th.
