More Info: Assisted Suicide and Caucuses

The International Task Force on Euthanasia and Assisted Suicide has provided a detailed Analysis of the Washington Assisted Suicide Initiative.  Please take the time to educate yourself about this issue!  Additional resources are available at Human Life of Washington.
Also, if you are interested in attending your party's caucus to elect candidates for the presidency, here is some more information about that:

You can help decide who your party's nominee is by attending your caucus on February 9.  The caucuses start at 1 PM.  It is recommended that you arrive early.  If you are late, you may not be able to participate.  If YFL parents want to go, it is recommended that you get a sitter for the day, though you can bring children if you need to. You might find it distracting to care for little ones and concentrate on the process simultaneously.  If both spouses cannot attend, perhaps just one of you can do so.  The caucus can last anywhere from one to a few hours.

At the caucuses, you will elect delegates to the county convention, where they will elect delegates to the state convention, and they will elect delegates to the national convention. The delegates who attend the national convention will play a critical role.  Be sure you can trust them.
