Information for 2022 Campaigns
Thank you for your interest in an endorsement from the King County Democrats. To receive an endorsement, you must complete a questionnaire. This is also required by many legislative district (LD) Democrats organizations.
- Subscribe for more information on King County Democrats endorsements as it becomes available: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KCDemsEndorsementsInterest
- 2022 Questionnaire for King Conservation District Candidates: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/KCDemsQuestionnaire2022
- 2022 Questionnaire for other candidates: <coming March 2022>
Note: The first few pages of the questionnaire and the final page are the same for all candidates, there may also be position-specific and/or jurisdiction-specific questions.
Completed questionnaires will be submitted via web.
You must submit your questionnaire directly to KCDCC via web to be considered. Questionnaires forwarded from a LD Democrats, King County Young Democrats, or a Democratic club will not be accepted.
On the final page of the questionnaire, campaigns can request a PDF copy of their questionnaire for submission to LD Democrats, Young Democrats, or other organizations. It may take 24-72 hours for a volunteer to send a copy of your completed questionnaire.
If you are running for a position entirely within a single LD (ex: WA State Senator, Duvall City Council), or supporting or opposing a ballot measure entirely within a single LD (ex: Mercer Island School Levy), you must be endorsed by the relevant LD Democratic organization before you can be endorsed by the King County Democrats. In this case, you will want to contact the Chair or Endorsements Chair of that legislative district organization and schedule yourself in the LD’s process.
You may review our full endorsement procedures.
