Here’s how to be sure your voice still matters

By a vote of 121 to 40, the Washington State Democrats have voted to use a primary to allocate delegates, who will then select a nominee in the 2020 presidential race. While some prefer the convenience of a primary, others are upset that the county level caucus system was eliminated.
One reason for the bad feelings is that this move will force independents and others to declare that they are a Democrat in order for their primary vote to count. Many may be unwilling to do so. For this reason it is important to educate voters on the importance of marking their ballot as Democrat in order for a vote for their preferred progressive candidate to count.
