This’ll probably work for the 43rd:

1. Look up your precinct in this pdf map. (My cache of the file.)

2. Look up your location in this spreadsheet table. (My cache of the file)

Both are directly from the King County and the 43rd Democrats respectively. The table is listed as the “final” version.

Warning--if that's the 43rd District Dem's spreadsheet, it is completely contrary to what the Google map finders tell you.

Google tells me my site is the Lowell School; the Excel Table tells me my site is Prospect Church.

I'm beginning to think the system is FUBAR.

NapoleonXIV, I noticed that too. I'm tending to believe the spreadsheet, as it is clearly listed as the final locations.

I think many of the google-map finders are based upon an older list--before turnouts were expected to be so high.

The problem seems to be that Google only sites you as far as the middle of your street--I'm on a dividing line between two precincts, and it's lumped me in the wrong one.

Why one precinct should caucus three blocks away, and its immediate neighbor should caucus two miles away is another question entirely. Grrrrrr......

This is exactly why we need to go to a primary system. I know caucusing is quaint and you get to hang out with your neighbors and give speeches, etc. But honestly, this is no way to actively solicit the will of the people.

Even with the mighty power of the internet, this stuff is so complex as to be silly. Prior to the internet, how the *hell* could you ever have found your caucus location?

Anybody else going to Melrose Terrace Apt on E Republican St? Is this going to be like some dudes apartment, or like one of those condo party room things?

Obama has a "caucus finder" on his website:

This might help...

I know my caucus location because I was mailed a postcard from the 43rd a week ago. Didn't anyone else get a postcard with the info on it?

AND: Obama's site put me at the incorrect location.

I got a postcard, but it told me to check out the 43rd website for my location.
