Democrats cannot send an affidavit to their precinct caucus but must attend in person

Democrats who want to participate in the March 26 precinct caucuses but can’t get to their caucus sites no longer can designate their choices for president by giving a form to someone who will attend their caucus, but they can send a note or form declaring their candidacy to be a delegate to district caucuses or the King County Democratic Convention.

The deadline for sending the form by mail, fax or a scanned PDF was Friday at 5pm.

They can’t vote for the people to represent them at those events without attending a caucus.

Other information about the caucuses is available here. Democrats can find a declaration of candidacy form by following a link from that site.

Washington Democrats choose their delegates to the national presidential nominating convention through the precinct caucuses followed by legislative district caucuses, county conventions and the congressional district and state convention.

Republicans use the May presidential primary. Democrats do not.
