Welcome to our Local Elections Team! We focus on local elections in Washington State. Our members review and evaluate candidates and identify those who will make a difference in our neighborhoods and communities at all levels, from school board to County Council. We then identify candidates we believe will bring positive change to our community, and where our team can really help.
Please note: NSP does not endorse candidates, we SUPPORT candidates. What’s the difference? An endorsement means little unless it’s backed up by actions. When our members agree to support a candidate they follow up by canvassing, phone banking, writing postcards, donating, text banking, or taking other actions to support the election of that candidate.
ACTIONS FOR LOCAL ELECTIONS

How does NSP decide whether to support a candidate?
The NSP membership meets regularly and evaluates a wide variety of criteria ranging from our perception of the candidate to whether the support of our small but determined volunteer team can make a real difference in the contest. We recognize that although time and resources of our volunteers are finite we can make a real difference by working as a small, well-organized team.
Are you a candidate who would like NSP support?
We are currently our candidate selections for the 2023 primary and general elections. We are always interested to learn why our support of your candidacy would make a real difference- please contact our organizers to learn more.
