Welcome to the 24th LD!

Stay Home/Stay Healthy: Our hearts go out to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our hearts go out to those who are ill and those caring for them. Our hearts go out to those who are suffering economically and who cannot get the care they need. We are grateful for the empathy and professionalism of our front line healthcare workers and first responders as well as our health officers and elected officials who make such difficult decisions on our behalf. 

Our Democratic values can see us through. We have confidence in science and the capacity of government. We hope to see more action from DC as our advocates work on our behalf. We know that we need to address the health needs of us all as well as those in economic distress.

We also know that we must assure that we elect a Democratic POTUS in November and send Donald Trump packing. 

We are choosing our nominee. The March 10 Washington State Democratic Primary is certified, and the Washingtion State Democrats allocated delegates only to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders, as they are the only ones to meet the 15% threshold in any Washington jurisdiction. As it happens, they are the only ones still contending.

We will not be electing state delegates in mass meetings on May 3 in Jefferson, Clallam, and Grays Harbor counties. Instead, the 24thLD Precinct Committee Officers will participate in an on-line election of state delegates. Those delegates will elect our national delegates at the 6thCongressional District level (on-line late May) and at the State Convention (still on the calendar for mid-June … so far).

These national delegates will participate in our National Convention (still on the calendar in July … so far).

There is more on the nomination process in Washington here

+++++

As the field narrows, many of us, especially campaigners, are sad that our chosen candidates will not advance. Let’s all be kind to one another as we catch our breath, look forward to the next stages of the nomination process, and look forward to the coming challenge of the general election.

Only one thing is certain: We will need each other if we want to elect a Democrat to the White House.

About us:  We are the Democratic party organization on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. We are dedicated to the election of Democrats up and down the ticket. We support the work of our county and state Democratic party organizations.

Any Democrat in the district may join and take part in our quarterly regular meetings. The membership includes all Democratic Precinct Committee Officers and the county party officers they elect.

To be directly involved with Democrats working in your community, you might want to take part in one of the vibrant county Democratic organizations within the district: Clallam, Grays Harbor, and Jefferson. Each has monthly meetings, a newsletter, and other activities. Clallam County also has a Young Democrats organization. (Aberdeen, Montesano, and the southern half of Grays Harbor are in the 19th LD.)
