The 45th District holds the key to a Democratic State Senate majority in 2017. By winning this year’s special Senate election, we can make Washington State into a haven for progressive values. We will finally have the votes to fully fund public education, lay the groundwork for progressive tax reform, and pass bills like the Washington Voting Rights Act and the Reproductive Health Act.

Sign up today to help us flip the Senate!


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
