3rd Legislative District Caucus

April 26, 2020

Democrats in the 3rd Legislative District (and other "urban" legislative districts in Washington) will gather across the state to select delegates to attend the 2020 Washington State Democratic Convention (to be held in Tacoma, Washington --- scheduled for June 11-13, 2020) and the 5th Congressional District Caucus (scheduled for May 30, 2020, location to be determined.)

The start time for this event is likely to be 1:00 pm with event registration and delegate candidate registration starting at 12 noon.

At the meeting approximately 26 delegates and 13 alternates* will be elected to represent the legislative district at the Washington State Democratic Convention (June 11-13, in Tacoma) as well as the 5th Congressional District Caucus (Saturday, May 30, 2020, location to be determined.) Delegates and alternates should plan to be available to attend BOTH meetings.

The allocation of delegates and alternates between presidential candidates will be determined by the results of the March 10, 2020 presidential primary in the 5th Congressional District. Voting for delegates and alternates will be by sub-caucuses of attendees who support a presidential candidate allocated delegates based on the results of the presidential primary.

For example, assume Candidate A is allocated 8 delegates and 4 alternates to the Washington State Democratic Convention and the 5th Congressional District Caucus. Democrats residing in the 3rd Legislative District attending the legislative district caucus who support Candidate A will choose the people who will be the 8 delegates and 4 alternates. 

At the 2020 Washington State Democratic Convention, delegates will adopt a party platform for the next two years and vote on other matters properly before the convention.

At the 5th Congressional District Caucus, delegates will chose our congressional district's four delegates to the 2020 Democratic National Convention, to be held July 13-16, 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The allocation of the four delegates between presidential candidates will be based on the results of the March 10, 2020 presidential primary in the 5th Congressional District.

 

* The number of delegates and alternates is from the 2016 election cycle. The actual number of delegates and alternates allocated to the 3rd LD for 2020 will be calculated by the state party and communicated about March 1, 2020.
