Can’t attend Washington’s Democratic caucuses? Fill out this form

Not everyone has Saturdays free, for various reasons, but Washington state supporters of Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders can rest easy knowing they can still cast a vote even if they can’t attend the March 26 caucuses.

Anyone who can’t attend due to religious observance, military service, work schedule, disability or illness can fill out a surrogate affidavit form with the Washington State Democratic Party and have their vote counted. If you can't make it for another reason, too bad.

The form is due tomorrow, Friday, March 18 by 5 p.m., so don't delay.

People need to be 18 by Election Day, Nov. 8, and consider themselves Democrats.

Find the form here, and email it to, or fax it to (206)583-0301.
