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
  • Meeting candidates and elected officials
  • Campaign volunteering
  • Voter registration drives
  • Leadership training
  • Education on selected legislation with lobbying opportunities
  • Special events
