As stated on the front page of the Washington State Democrat's website, the Primary will not count toward picking the Democratic candidate, and if you select a Democratic ballot in the Primary, your vote won't make any difference as to who becomes the Democratic nominee. As the name of this site implies, it will be a wasted vote.
The only outcome you can sway with your Primary vote is the Republican Primary, and we urge you to do just that on February 19th.
The key thing to realize here is that you have nothing to lose. Voting in the Republican primary is NOT a vote in favor of the Republican Party. Rather, it is an opportunity to stack the deck on the Republican side with your preference. Even if you would rather not have any of the Republicans be president, you can at least vote for the one that matches your values most closely.
Ron Paul is the only anti-war candidate running for the Republican nomination.
Many of us did not expect that a Republican could win the last election, especially not when the popular vote went against him. It is entirely possible that this could happen again. Wouldn't you prefer that you had done everything in your power to be certain that even if a Republican wins the election, we will be getting out of this war immediately?

We urge you not to waste your vote in the 2008 Washington primary. Please join us in voting against the cruelty of war. If you wish to cast a meaningful anti-war ballot, there is only one viable candidate: Ron Paul. Please mail in your ballot or turn it in at your polling station.
Do not forget to check the Republican box and sign your name
on the outside of the envelope (below the sticky foldover)!!!
