Endorsements for 2015

Information for Candidates

Thank you for your interest in receiving an endorsement from the King County Democrats. For the 2015 election cycle, you will need to fill out one of the following five (5) questionnaires, depending on which office you are running for:

  • State Questionnaire (Word)
  • County Questionnaire [for Council, Assessor, Elections Director] (Word)
  • Port of Seattle Questionnaire (Word)
  • School District Questionnaire (Word)
  • Municipal Questionnaire for City Councils, Mayors, and all non-school/port special district Commissioners (Word)

Completed questionnaires should be emailed to questionnaires@kcdems.org. At a minimum, they must be received 7 days in advance of any endorsement vote; this particular requirement is now in our bylaws and cannot be waived or suspended. Note that you will most likely want to get your questionnaire in much earlier than this.

All candidates who have submitted questionnaires are listed here; this list will update at least every few days (and also on the 7th day before any meeting).

You may also wish to review our full endorsement procedures which are significantly different from previous years.
