No presidential primary ballot, time to caucus

February 7, 2012

Washingtonians will not be able to take part in the Presidential Primary frenzy this spring because of a 2011 legislative decision to axe the annual rite to save a purported $10 million in the state budget. The cancellation was proposed through Senate Bill 5119 that expires in 2013, leaving a Presidential primary an option in 2016.
In the meantime, the local political parties will be offering caucus meetings to collect public opinion on a 2012 Presidential candidate.
