Dozens of races across Washington will determine if Democrats maintain — or possibly even increase — their control of the state Legislature.
All 98 seats in the House are up for election Nov. 6, and voters will decide 25 of the Senate’s 49 seats.
While Democrats hold most statewide offices in Washington, the political split in the Legislature is much narrower: Democrats currently hold a one-seat advantage in the Senate and a two-seat advantage in the House.
“People think of us as a blue state even though we are a deeply divided state,” said Cornell Clayton, director of the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy at Washington State University.
Seventeen of the races on the ballot are for open seats with no incumbent: 14 in the House and three in the Senate.
