What Is A Legislative District?

by Karen Willard

The 31st Legislative District, which elects two members of the house and one senator to Olympia, sits in both King and Pierce Counties. It includes parts of Auburn, and Edgewood, all of Sumner, Lake Tapps, Bonney Lake, South Prairie, Wilkeson, Buckley, and Enumclaw. See the map of the 31st

The state legislative district forms the lowest tier of the overall Democratic Party organization. We do get some direction and support from the higher levels, namely the Pierce county and King county Democratic Central Committees (PCDCC & KCDCC), the state Democratic party (WSDCC) and the national Democratic party (DNC), but whatever party outreach/action needs to happen at the local level, that's generally up to us.

Membership in the 31st organization is open to anyone who considers him/herself a Democrat and has an interest in the district, and includes all the elected or appointed Democratic precinct committee officers of the 31st Legislative District. What's a Precinct Committee Officer?
