Sanders in Spokane Sunday

Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders will be at the Spokane Convention Center Sunday evening as part of a three-stop swing through Washington a week before the Democratic precinct caucuses.

The Sanders campaign announced a rally at the convention center ballroom. Doors open at 6 p.m., although Sanders isn't scheduled to appear until 9 p.m.

The Spokane event will follow a rally at Seattle's Key Arena, where doors will open at 2 p.m. and Sanders is scheduled to speak at 6 p.m., and rally at a Vancouver high school where he'll speak at 1 p.m.

The events are free and open to the public, although admittance will be on a first-come basis. The public for the Spokane rally will enter through the breezeway between the convention center and the INB Performing Arts Center. More information is available here.

The Democratic precinct caucuses will be held on March 26, the beginning of delegate selection for party's presidential nominees in Washington. (Editor's note: An earlier version of this post incorrectly listed the date of the caucuses.)

Those who can't attend the caucuses because of scheduling conflicts can fill out a surrogate affidavit and have their vote counted for candidate support. But those have to be filled out by 5 p.m. today (as in Friday, March 18). More information on the surrogate affidavits can  be found here.
