WHEREAS, The Washington State Republican Party (WSRP)
encourages participation in the political process and voter turn-out; and,

up the Washington State presidential primary to the 3rd week in February making it a first 5 state.
THEREFORE, BE IT ALSO RESOLVED, The WSRP encourages and requests
That state legislators would move forward with Legislation that would move the WA State Primary to this earlier date.
