The King County Democrats have a long history of successful activism and winning elections. Across the County we have elected a Democratic County Executive, Assessor, Sheriff, 6 out of 9 County Councilmembers, and 4 out of 5 Port Commissioners.
Statewide, we have ensured that Democrats have held the Governor’s mansion for four decades, We have lifted Democratic U.S. Senators to victory in every race they’ve run going back twenty-two years. We are proud to have awarded all of our electoral votes to Democrats every presidential election cycle since 1988.
Our party and our success has been built from our volunteers working countless hours to share our message with voters across King County. We truly thank every voter, volunteer, precinct committee officer and leader who have made our party strong and successful.
