Help Democrats win the State Senate!
Republicans control the Washington State Senate by one vote and the 2017 legislative session has demonstrated how much damage they can do. Fortunately, we have a special election in a swing district this year to help Democrats win back the State Senate!
Doorbelling Carpools for Manka Dhingra!
Democrat Manka Dhingra is running for State Senate in the 45th Legislative District (Redmond and Kirkland). We need your help to knock on doors to remind Democratic voters to mail in their ballots! Manka’s campaign is running doorbelling operations from their campaign headquarters (8151 164th Ave NE, Redmond) starting at 10AM and 1PM every Saturday and Sunday. Join them any time!
From the 36th, we will be organizing carpools from Ballard on four weekend dates this fall: Sun, Oct. 1st; Sun, Oct. 15th; Sat, Oct. 21st; and Sat, Nov. 4th.
