The 45th holds the key to a Democratic State Senate majority in 2017. By winning this year’s special Senate election, we will finally have the twenty-five votes in the Senate we need to govern and address our school funding crisis. Together, we can fire the Senate Republicans and lay the groundwork for progressive tax reform and legislation our state sorely needs, like the Washington Voting Rights Act or the Reproductive Health Act, which have been stymied been the Senate Republicans. Sign up today to help us Flip the Senate!

Welcome to the 45th’s online home!

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. The 45th also works to elect Democrats to higher office.

Aside from supporting Democratic candidates, our activities include:

  • Monthly meetings
  • Regular e-mail news and information
  • Opportunities to meet elected officials
  • Campaign volunteering
  • Voter registration drives
  • Leadership training
  • Special events
