State Legislature — Seattle/Tacoma Metro Districts

This guide won't tell you who to vote for, but should help you make the choice for yourself. 

We're a nonprofit so we don't make political endorsements of any kind. What we do is publicly driven journalism. And this year, for the first time, we’ve invited other Washington media organizations to partner with us to produce this statewide resource. Journalists from those organizations wrote some of the candidate bios and you may have reached the guide from one of those sites. If you’re new to Cascade PBS, welcome. Thanks for stopping by. 

Candidate bios make up the meat of this guide. The potatoes are tips and links that will help you do things like register to vote and turn in your ballot, as well as learn about Washington's unique systems.

What's at stake?

Washington voters are about to choose their next representatives in Olympia. All 98 Washington House seats are up for election, as well as 25 of 49 Senate seats.

What legislative district do you live in?

The boundaries of Washington's 49 districts have been withdrawn (in a messy and quite dramatic fashion) so you may be voting in a new district this year. Your ballot will tell you which district you’re in, but our maps will help as well. The Legislature also has a district finder on its website, but it may not have been updated in time for this election. Let your ballot be your guide.
