Got ballot? Check out labor’s primary election endorsements

(July 15, 2021) — If you haven’t already received your Primary Election ballot for the 2021 election, you will any day now. County auditors around Washington state are mailing ballots to voters this week, and union voters are being urged to fill them out right away and return them. Voter turnout in Primary Elections is often very light so union voters can make a big impact on critical local elections by voting in July!

The 2021 election is mostly for county and city offices. Several of our state’s regional Central Labor Councils have made recommendations for union members’ consideration. These CLCs have reviewed questionnaires, interviewed candidates, studied voting records, and voted upon which candidates — and ballot measures — have earned labor’s endorsement.

AFL-CIO Central Labor Council endorsements:

MLK Labor (King County)
Pierce County Central Labor Council
Snohomish & Island County Labor Council
Southwest Washington Central Labor Council (Clark)
Spokane Regional Labor Council

If your CLC isn’t listed here, contact your local Central Labor Council to see if they have any 2021 primary election recommendations.
