This year, the main target of the whining is a state Supreme Court race, which on Friday was still somewhat in doubt.

Presidential Election 2016

Washington's Democratic and Republican parties will use different systems for picking a presidential nominee.

Republicans will caucus Saturday, Feb. 20, but they will not be picking a candidate for president. Caucus attendees will choose delegates to the GOP county convention. Those delegates will choose delegates to the statewide Republican Convention, to be held May 19 in the Tri-Cities. There, Washington delegates will be selected to attend the Republican National Convention, which is scheduled to begin July 18 in Cleveland. Republican delegates sent to Cleveland will be bound to back candidates based on the outcome of the results of a presidential primary election that will be held May 24.

Democrats will ignore the results of the May 24 presidential primary and select delegates based on a caucus on March 26 that will include voting for president.
