    The Washington Presidential Primary is just the beginning for Washington Voters wanting to elect the next Democratic President. Delegates for those candidates who meet the 15% threshold, will be elected at the 23rd LD Caucus, May 3 10am at Bremerton High School. They then go on to the 6th Congressional District  Caucus to choose part of the National Delegation May 30 at the House of Awakening Culture, Suquamish, WA. Finally the Delegates will meet in the Washington State Democratic Convention, June 11-13 in Tacoma to elect at-large Delegates and conduct other party business.

    If you want to vote for a Democratic Presidential Candidate, please consider holding your ballot until after Super Tuesday Mar. 3. Consider this: based on the Super Tuesday results, perhaps your choice of candidate will be more strategic. Our WA ballots are due March 10. 

    Don't forget that you must check the box on the outside of the ballot that says Democrat. Sign, date and mail or put in the dropbox.

    Hey Democrats - I wanted to let you know that we have already committed over half our tables for the 2020 Magnuson Dinner - Saturday, March 7th, 5-9 pm, at the Washington State Convention Center. 

    55/100 tables are claimed! If you or your LPO are interested in a table, please do act quickly and feel free to contact Joe Barden (cc’ed on this email, or in person in Vancouver this weekend.)

    As you know, we are taking advantage of our Presidential Candidates being in town before the 3/10 Presidential Primary for an intimate event with a 1000+ of our friends  - actually the biggest dinner that Washington Democrats will have ever done! This replaces the Crab Feed this year (and, if you have a hankering for Crab DO go to the Pacific County Crab Feed the following weekend! I’ll be there too!)

    We will be joined by Governor Jay Inslee, our Federal Delegation, and expect special guests from the national Democratic Party as well. We also anticipate each of the leading presidential campaigns will be out in force organizing around this event and we also expect to feature them at our event, schedules pending. 

    We’d love to have you or your LPO consider doing a table  - again, Joe is cc’ed on this email and happy to personally walk you through the sign up process, but the link is also here: www.wa-democrats.org/magnuson

    We will have a limited number of reduced price tickets for Young Democrats (Nathaniel Block is working with Joe to coordinate those tables), and by special request for “living lightly” folks - please contact Joe Barden for more information. Also, we have new fundraising tools next week that will make your Table Captain experience easy, and, allow you to fundraise are an individual for your ticket too - easily!  Ask Adam Tradii about those: adam@wa-democrats.org

    Learn about the unfair fee increase proposed by USCIS.  Make your voice heard!

    On November 14, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officially published a proposal which would raise the naturalization application fee by 83% to $1,170.  The proposal would also eliminate all naturalization fee waivers.  These proposed changes would put the dream of U.S. citizenship beyond the reach of millions of Lawful Permanent Residents (LPRs) who are eligible to naturalize, including more than 4.4 million Latinos.

    Naturalization is important and beneficial to all Americans.  If implemented, the changes would prevent patriotic and committed LPRs from becoming full participants in our nation's civic life.  It would limit their opportunity to pursue economic mobility, which contributes to our nation's prosperity.
    Fee changes proposed by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will significantly increase filing fees for various immigration benefits, including Naturalization, Lawful Permanent Residency, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, and Employment Authorization. The agency has proposed, for the first time, to charge a fee to apply for asylum.  Submit your comments opposing the unfair naturalization fee hike proposal by December 16, 2019.

    Visit KIAC's website for more details.


    You can submit your written comments at the federal government portal [click hereor by mail.  We have provided a template [click here].  We encourage you to personalize your comments.

    The deadline for comments is December 16, so please act as soon as you can.

    You may have heard about the new Presidential Primary scheduled for March 10, 2020. What you may not know is that the primary election will replace the Precinct Caucus for deciding who gets delegates and who doesn't. Who the delegates are will be decided later at Legislative District Caucuses. Since the process is new to Washington, our Past Chair and current State Committee person, Mary Bryant has condensed the process for us. Click below for a one page summary.
