Run for Office in WA State:
Why run for public office? Because WA State always needs strong, passionate leaders.
With threats to our environment, A fronts—and the only way forward is for more leaders to step up and organize.
Take a moment and think about the cause you feel closest to—equal pay, WA education, the arts? How are you uniquely qualified to stand up for this cause? And how have you maybe already started doing so in your community?
By running for office, you’ll be taking a stand for your cause in an entirely new way, and at scale. Where do you start? Take a moment to explore runforoffice.org, a free database of all current open positions for which you can be eligible to run, where you can quickly and easily know where there are open positions and for what. After that, it’s just a matter of taking the plunge.

Become a PCO: https://www.wa-democrats.org/local/pco/
Being a Precinct Committee Officer (PCO) is one of the most important roles in our party. As a PCO, you are on the front lines of winning elections up and down the ballot – from the School Board to the Senate. Here’s what PCOs do:
- PCOs are the main point of information and contact for voters in your neighborhood and within the Democratic Party.
- PCOs are also a central part of their local Democratic organization. They elect Party leadership, help fill vacancies in elected office, and lead their precinct caucus every two years.
Becoming a PCO is one of the most important roles you can play in helping Democrats win up and down the
ballot in your area.
Indivisible Washington’s Take Action Network was founded on the principle that you want to help improve the world, but your time and energy are limited. You especially want to work on the issues that matter most to you, and don’t want to spend your efforts on actions and events that won’t make a difference.
Take Action Network automatically provides you with personalized actions and events matched to your interests, values, and abilities from trustworthy sources. All actions and events are categorized by issue, type of action, organization that hosts the action, time-duration, and location. These are matched to the details you provide in your profile, yielding highly relevant actions for you. You visit your dedicated action feed at any time and find the timeliest and most relevant actions for you.
The Take Action Network or TAN personalizes the actions you view. When you provide your address where you are registered to vote, or your Legislative and Congressional Districts, it shows you who your elected officials are. This makes taking actions quick and easy, as only actions relevant to your elected officials will be shown to you, and scripts are pre-filled with the correct information.
You can also create highly customized search alerts that deliver to your inbox actions each morning matching actions and events that were created the prior day.
