Welcome to the website of the 45th District Democrats of Washington State.

The 45th is a legislative district located in northeastern King County, encompassing parts of Kirkland, a slice of Redmond, most of Woodinville, a swath of Sammamish and incorporated Duvall.

The 45th District Democrats help shape the future of our region through grassroots politics. We help people at all levels of political interest and time commitment make an active difference in our community.

The 45th’s most important work is electing Democratic candidates to the Washington State Legislature. Elections for legislative positions take place in even-numbered years. Members of the House serve two-year terms and members of the Senate serve four-year terms. All three positions are on the ballot this election year. The 45th’s legislative candidates are shown at left as part of an example ballot. The 45th also works to elect Democrats like Suzan DelBene and Jason Ritchie to higher office.
