Caucus and Convention Locations

I'm collecting information on when and where the rest of the caucus cycle events are going to be held.

Please see the list here.

If you see a blank next to your LD, County or CD, please contact me with what is missing.

I'm also building a map to show all of these events.

Frustrations after the jump.

I thought this was going to be easy.  The initial schedule from the state party had the Precinct Caucuses on February 9th, the LD Conventions on April 5th, the County Conventions on April 19th, the Congressional District Caucuses on May 17th, and the State Convention in June.  Easy, simple, no problem.

Then 4/19 was revealed to be a date of significance that made people uncomfortable.  For good reason, but it's still frustrating.  I didn't know how frustrating until I started asking for locations for all the LD events on April 5th, and got back that some LD's are being split up and combined with County events.  Some County events are being split up and combined with LD events.  I'm hoping that all the CD Caucuses are going to stay on May 17th, but I haven't gotten confirmation on that yet.

So, vent, rant, whatever.  Yeah, the Washington State Democrats are the most organized Democratic Party in the country.  Tell me another one...

...caucuses have the same number of participants as in 2004 - I mean, in theory - or does the precinct turnout also change the number of participants down the line?

The 43rd LD caucus location has been confirmed:
Garfield (Lincoln) High School
4400 Interlake Ave N
Seattle  98103

As I write, this information hasn't yet been propagated to the websites of the 43rd District Dems, King County Dems, or WA Dems.

and I'm an Obama delegate from my precinct, supposed to go to LD Caucus on April 5 at 10 AM but haven't heard where to go - not sure how to find out.  The list you posted was helpful, and I see 19th LD has nothing showing.  Can't find it on county democrat website, so.... guess I better find out somehow.

Thanks for the links, though.  I was hoping as the weeks went by that all the LDs would have a site, time, posted, which would have answered my question.
