I think most of you know me. I'm the poster boy for close elections.
As you may remember, I won my 2008 Senate campaign after a long recount by just 312 votes out of 2.9 million cast. That's a margin of about 1/100th of one percent. So I can tell you from personal experience that every vote counts.
The Skamania County Democrats have come out with an advertisement that they intend to send to the local newspapers in their county and the area.
If you'd like to help pay for this ad, and thus help our Democratic candidates win, please contact Paul Spencer.
In January, the WSDCO passed a motion to establish a committee to inventory the online infrastructure of the local parties in Washington State, and I want to present the results of that research. I have posted a link on our home page entitled "The status of our party's online infrastructure".
If you have any questions or if you can help me fill in the blanks, please let me know.

WSDCO Vice Chair Andrew Brewer gave a presentation on Voter Protection at our October 8th meeting. You can view the presentation here.
The following is the letter from James Rolf that Andrew mentioned during the presentation:
County and LD Chairs,
Voter Protection is a key component to ensuring a fair and just elections process. Our statewide effort involves recruiting, training, and engaging hundreds of volunteers. These volunteers play a major role in helping us monitor the elections process in each and every county.

Where can I find a Party calendar that provides direction and dates for upcoming elections in January?
Yo! Republicans! Yes, you, in the party I abandoned 15 years ago.
Four years ago, my former brother in law, an Army Reservist, passed away suddenly at age 54 from a brain aneurism followed by a massive stroke. His son was 15 at the time. My sister was faced with a sudden loss of child support at a time when boys are fairly expensive. Thank heavens for Social Security! They continued to make payments to help her support her son and keep her home until he could finish school, like his father would have done if he had survived.

To the Voters of the Washington state 15th Legislative District -
Want to take the next step as a Party activist?
Today is the first day of filing week in Washington State. Between now and Friday, June 11th, you have the rare opportunity to stand for election as a Democratic Precinct Committee Officer (PCO).
PCOs are elected officials of the Democratic Party. They are the Democratic representative for their precinct. A precinct can be as small as a section of a neighborhood or as large as a historical "township," but precincts usually contain 200 to 800 registered voters.

What is the difference between the Top Two primary, and the primaries we have always conducted in Washington?
A primary election can serve either one of two roles: either to winnow down the number of candidates who will appear on the general ballot; or to nominate the candidate for a political party.
In a non-partisan election, such as city council races in Washington, the primary takes a field of candidates running for a given office and winnows down (reduces) that field to two.
