Our 2022 General Election Endorsements

Share This

Every year, AFT Washington makes endorsements in primary and general elections. We base the endorsement on a combination of factors. FIrst, candidates must request endorsement from us. Second, we review their legislative scorecard. If they voted in line with our legislative priorities (occasionally we will remove a contentious or difficult bill, so this year the required percentage was 83%), we will give them an automatic endorsement. If they do not receive an automatic endorsement, we send them a questionnaire that our COPE committee evaluates, and conduct an interview.

These are our current endorsements for the 2022 General Election. Any candidate who filled out questionnaire has their questionnaire linked (just click on their name). Any candidate who got an endorsement on the strength of voting for our priorities has their legislative record score listed. 

If you have any questions, please contact Anna-Marie Magdalena, State Affiliate Political Organizer, at amagdalena@aftwa.org.
