37th Legislative District Democrats
U.S. Presidential Election Survey

In response to requests from members seeking to comment on the controversy surrounding the presidential election, the 37th LD Democrats provided an optional survey and comment opportunity this week. The survey polled active members and precinct committee officers on the question of whether Joe Biden should withdraw his candidacy for re-election to the presidency.

Of the 82 respondents, 72% answered yes, Biden should withdraw his candidacy.

The vote count was 59 yes, 16 no, and 7 unsure. The survey also provided an opportunity to add comments.

Read the comments here.

The survey was open from July 8-11, 2024 to current 37th LD Democrats members and precinct committee officers. All survey respondents were obliged to agree to have their survey responses shared.

Volunteer With the Coordinated Campaign!

The Washington State Party Coordinated Campaign is ramping up!

This team is boosting voter turnout for the August 6 primary by having conversations with targeted voters who aren’t likely to vote unless YOU talk to them.

The effort will feature outreach on behalf of Bob Ferguson, Maria Cantwell, our congressional delegation, our State Senators and State Representatives.

There will be phonebanks, traditional Saturday canvasses, and a Knock-Your-Own-Neighborhood canvassing program which allows volunteers to knock on doors in their own neighborhood, at their own pace.

Sign up here!

Congratulations to Our Endorsed Candidates!

Vote counts for contested endorsements are available. View the full documentation here.
