Get Endorsed

Endorsement of candidates and ballot measures for elections is an important function of our organization. We take this process very seriously to make sure it provides a fair and transparent system so that our membership can feel confident in our recommendations.

The timeline for candidates to be considered for endorsement is very short, given the constraints of the state filing requirements, and Voter Pamphlet printing deadlines. We recommend candidates request endorsement as soon as they know they will be filing given the short time frame to make sure they get on the schedule for an interview with our committee.

Questions? Contact Endorsement Committee Chair, endorsewa48@gmail.com.
