BELLEVUE, WA – The King County Republican Party (KCGOP) is deeply troubled by recent developments that have raised serious concerns about transparency and the integrity of our electoral process.

During the recent Primary Election, a significant event unfolded – the replacement of the primary tabulation server, the central component of the election process. This replacement necessitated a Logic and Accuracy Test (L&A Test) to certify the server as compliant to conduct elections in Washington State. Astonishingly, the KCGOP was not notified of this server replacement or the subsequent required L&A Test. Such a failure to inform and involve political parties directly violates the essence of WAC 434-335-330 and WAC 434-335-310, which mandate the notification of political parties and their participation in these critical tests to safeguard election integrity, in accordance with RCW 29.A.12.130.

Compounding these concerns, our public records request revealed that the security camera meant to capture the L&A Test was not operational on the day of the test. The absence of video documentation during a pivotal phase of the electoral process amplifies our apprehensions regarding transparency, accountability, and adherence to the law.

While we appreciate Director Wise’s response from the King County Elections Office to our letter outlining our concerns, the proposed changes for future elections fall short of addressing the procedural breakdown and lack of compliance with state laws that have occurred. A mere apology does not suffice when the trust in our elections is on the line.

KCGOP Chairman Mathew Patrick Thomas declared, “This isn’t merely a procedural lapse; it represents a breach of public trust. Our electoral process is the bedrock of our democracy, and any actions undermining its transparency and integrity must be swiftly and decisively rectified.”

We demand a thorough and transparent investigation into the incident, along with a rigorous examination of King County Elections to determine any and all violations of state laws and regulations. Immediate steps must be taken to rectify these issues and reassure the public that the upcoming General 2023 Election will be conducted with unwavering compliance with all legal requirements.

The KCGOP remains vigilant in its commitment to ensuring fair, legal, and transparent elections. We expect nothing less from those entrusted with administering them.

“You are now leaving the USA”

That’s what the sign says as you look into what Seattle radical activists have dubbed the CHAZ, or Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone. Once again Seattle is in the spotlight for the wrong reasons. Jay Inslee and Jenny Durkan are the laughing stock of the entire country.

In the midst of this chaos, radical protestors have been violently confronting our local law enforcement officers. KCGOP has created a petition to show our officers the REAL support they have from the silent majority that has been drowned out by a radical and vocal anti-police minority.

Our goal of reaching 50,000 signatures has been reached and it keeps on growing! Thank you to everyone that has signed our petition in support of our Police.

Pitch in today and help us raise enough money to support PRO-POLICE candidates for this upcoming election and send Jay Inslee to retirement in the CHAZ! 

If you haven’t yet– You can also help support our efforts by signing this petition!


On the Recent Tragedy in Kittitas County

On the evening of March 19th, 2019 a tragedy happened in our neighboring community of Kittitas County. Due to the recent information that has been confirmed by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) about the immigration status of the suspect, Chair of the King County Republican Party, Cynthia Cole, had this to say:


“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has confirmed that the road rage suspect who shot and killed a Kittitas County sheriff’s deputy was in the country illegally. Now, due to Washington State Elected Official’s Executive Orders, Federal lawsuits, and radical policy, three children have lost their father, a wife is a widow, and a community mourns.”


She continued by saying, “The wisdom of enforcing our country’s immigration laws has again tragically been demonstrated. The sanctuary state attitude of our Governor and State Attorney General has created an environment where people who break our immigration laws know there will likely be no consequences.”


She finally stated, “I think it is about time we openly hold our elected officials responsible for the policy that they enact. I urge everyone in King County and our surrounding communities to pose this question to them—who are you protecting?”
