ELECTIONS IN 2020
The Washington State Presidential Primary results determined the number of delegates each candidate for President will receive. Biden will be allocated 46 delegates and Bernie Sanders will be allocated 43 delegates.
Due to the current state of emergency in Washington State preventing our ability to gather and conduct caucuses for this election, the Washington State Democratic Executive Committee has decided that under their emergency powers, the Washington State Democratic Party organizations may conduct meetings by electronic or other remote access means.
The 23rd Legislative District Democrats have 33 delegates, and 16 alternate delegates for a total of fortynine. Results of the Washington State Democratic Presidential Primary ballot indicate that Joseph R Biden won 19 delegates plus 9 alternates and Bernie Sanders won 14 delegates plus 7 alternates.
Duly elected and appointed 23rd Legislative District Democratic Precinct Committee Officers (PCO) will receive a digital ballot with the list of potential delegates, which must be returned no later than 9:00 pm on Sunday May 3rd, 2020. The Precinct Committee Officers will be responsible for electing the delegates to the 6th Congressional District Caucus and Democratic State Convention. Results will be available by May 5, 2020.
The 23rd Legislative Delegates participate in the 6th Congressional District virtual meeting on May 30 where they elected three Sanders and three Biden Delegates to the National Convention. The Washington State Democratic Convention is scheduled to be held virtually June 13, 9:00am to 5:00pm.
The National Democratic Convention date has been changed. It will be held August 17-20, 2020, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
