40th Legislative District Democrats primary endorsement meeting June 19
40th District Democrats will meet June 19 to decide whether to endorse candidates and issues in advance of the Aug. 17 primary election.
The membership will first consider whether to do primary endorsements. 40th District Democrats may endorse none, one, or more than one candidate for positions which affect the entire district.
The 40th District policy allows that 40th District members “may” do primary endorsements. Accordingly, the membership will first vote whether to endorse. If the membership votes to endorse, endorsement votes will proceed immediately with members as of June 12 eligible to vote.
House Position 1 candidates Tom Boucher, Kris Lytton and Tom Pasma are all expected to seek endorsement. House position 2 incumbent Jeff Morris has requested endorsement. Candidates for other races which affect the entire 40th who would like to be considered for endorsement should formally request endorsement by contacting the chairwoman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 40th may also consider endorsing propositions which affect the entire district, and it will also consider a resolutions policy and resolutions.
Who can vote: All Democrats who live in the 40th District and have current 40th LD memberships and attend the meeting may vote.
To be a member in good standing, membership applications must be for the 2010 calendar year, and must postmarked on or before by June 12. Membership applications are available at wa40dems.net.
Note: PCOs have automatic membership. Proxy voting is not allowed.
Meeting details: The Elks Club (downstairs), 710 Samish Way, Bellingham, June 19, 2 p.m. (Registration begins at 1:30).
