Eastern Washington Voters
We Are Making Eastern Washington into a More Progressive Place
Eastern Washington Voters is a group of people who are passionate about making Eastern Washington more progressive. Our members believe it is possible to make a difference, and they have proven it over and over again.
If you are tired of Eastern Washington being the “ball and chain” that holds back the progressive agenda for the rest of the State, please donate and become a member or supporter of Eastern Washington Voters. Below are a few highlights of our work. If you want more information, contact us to schedule a time to talk.
- In 2011, 2012, and 2013 we coordinated the largest partisan voter registration drive in Eastern Washington. Our registration and engagement program is one of the most sophisticated in the country.
- In 2008, we were instrumental in electing one of the only two Democratic rural County Commissioners in eastern Washington. In a close race, we helped Democrat Pat O’Neill win a seat in Whitman County by helping him design and fund a 5,000 pieces mailing to targeted voters.
- In 2006, Eastern Washington Voters helped film a TV ad using crop art that was key to defeating the anti-environmental I-933. You can watch it here.
- In 2004, we distributed 5,000 pieces of literature “by hand” in support of Christine Gregoire. As you know, she was elected by only 133 votes.
The Voting Record of Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers
Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ voting record has undermined Medicare, given tax breaks for the rich, and weakening environmental regulations. Visit this page to read about this.
Obsessed with advancing higher and higher into the Republican Party hierarchy and gaining more power, McMorris Rodgers continues to sell her votes to corporate interests at the expense of working class families in Eastern Washington. Since being elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2005, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers has amassed one of the most conservative and partisan voting records in the U.S. Congress.
