ABOUT Camano Island Democrats

Welcome to the Stanwood Camano Community!  Politically we are a purple community, with both Democrats and Republicans in office.  Often initiatives that are considered “progressive” will pass by the will of the people.  In past years, our community voted for marriage equality, decriminalization of marijuana and have worked to enhance reasonable protections for gun ownership.  We support strong schools, quality healthcare access for all people and protections of our natural resources.  We value families and working people, believing in equity and justice for all.


Getting involved in politics in our community can be confusing.  We have two Democratic Clubs-The Stanwood Democrats and The Camano Island Democrats.  These are volunteer led, membership organizations.  Island County Democrats is a strong and active progressive voice in our community and is affiliated with the Washington State Democrats.  In addition, our State is organized into Legislative Districts and Camano is represented by the 10th LD Democrats covering the northern part of Snohomish County, all of Island County and the Southern part of Skagit County.  


Camano Island Democrats current;y meet online with ZOOM due to restrictions caused by Covid 19. When meetings are again allowed we will meet at 7 pm on the third Wednesday of every month at the Camano Island Library, Terry’s Corner. Please check the calendar for date changes as the library is not always available. Speakers have included  local candidates and current office holders. We strive to provide relevant information on the issues of the day. The Stanwood Democrats and Camano Island Democrats work to elect Democrats for local office and support issues consistent with Democratic values.
