Eileen Quiring was elected Vice Chair of the Clark County Republican Party today by unanimous consent!


Beginning July 1st, a number of new election laws will take effect:

Earlier Presidential Primary

  • Washington state’s Presidential Primary will now take place on March 10th, 2020 — more than two months earlier than in previous years. This means your vote will have a greater impact in selecting the final presidential candidates, and you’ll be more likely to hear directly from candidates about Washington state issues.

Pre-paid ballot-return envelopes

  • You won't need a stamp when you vote, now that every ballot in every election will come with a pre-paid ballot-return envelope. With pre-paid postage, every mailbox is a drop box — so simply drop your ballot-return envelope into the mail before Election Day.

Automatic voter registration

  • Washington residents applying for an enhanced driver’s license or enhanced ID card with the Department of Licensing, will be automatically registered to vote. The same is true for applicants to Washington’s Health Benefit Exchange. If the applicant doesn’t want to be registered, he or she can always opt-out at the counter.

Be a #FutureVoter

  • 16- and 17-year-old Washington state residents can now enroll in the Future Voter program to automatically become a registered voter after their 18th birthday. If a person turns 18 on or before August 6th, they can vote in the 2019 Primary. If a person turns 18 on or before November 5th, they can vote in this year’s General Election.

Same-day registration

  • You have until eight days before an election to register online or by mail, but if you miss the deadline you can still visit your county elections office in person before 8 p.m. on August 6th to vote in the Primary, and before 8 p.m. on November 5th to vote in the General Election.

January 16, 2019

On December 8th of last year a new body of Precinct Committee Officers, a mixture of some experienced returning PCOs and some brand new to the body, met for their first official meeting and elected a new Executive Board with me as the Chair.   Just five weeks later they met again, and this time to perform a special function of the PCOs which is almost as rare as it is important.

When Eileen Quiring campaigned successfully for Clark County Council Chair last Fall, the Council seat for the Fourth District became vacant. The new body of PCOs was assigned by State law the task of selecting three candidates from which one will be appointed later this month by the four current County Councilors to fill that vacancy.
