Washington State Elections

November 24, 2020

  • Legislature:  Our state legislature is similar to the national one, with a governor and other executive positions elected every four years. In the House of Representatives, there 98 members, with two for every district, and they’re reelected every year. In the Senate, there are 49 members elected every 4 years (½ every 2 years).


  • Ballots: Washington has mail-in ballots, with ballots automatically mailed to every registered voter and no actual in-person polls. We also vote for policies (referendums, advisory votes, and joint resolutions).
