After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

We will start at 11:00am with a brief orientation on the voting methods we will employ, we will formally ratify our new Treasurer, and then move directly into the races.  Generally, the races will be in the order they appear on the ballot:

All races where a Democrat is unopposed by another Democrat (as a group)

  • Metropolitan King County Proposition 1
  • King County Executive
  • King County Council, District 1
  • Port of Seattle Races (Port races are Countywide)
  • Contested Judicial Races (if any)
  • Kenmore Races
  • Lake Forest Park Races
  • Seattle City Races
  • Northshore School District
  • Shoreline School District
  • Seattle School District has no districts in the primary
  • Special Purpose Districts


Voting in the endorsement meeting is a bit more tightly controlled than in regular meetings. 

You must be a member in good standing to vote.

You must be in the Zoom meeting to vote, and we do check before every single vote (so you can't register, and have someone in the meeting send you the ballot - that will not be valid, and we will catch you.)

Members in good standing, we hope to see you on Sunday, May 23rd!
