Membership in the Agriculture and Rural Issues Caucus is county based. Each of Washington’s 39 counties is entitled to three votes. Any self-identifying Democrat in Washington state that is registered to vote may be a non-voting member. Activities and meetings are held in conjunction with the quarterly Washington State Democratic Central Committee meetings and more often on-line. The Agriculture and Rural Issues Caucus brings together rural communities from Western and Eastern Washington to speak with one voice within the Washington State Democratic Central Committee.
Current Officers are:
