State significance

In 2016, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton captured 54% of the vote, while then-candidate Donald Trump won 38%.

The deep blue state, which a Republican hasn’t won on the presidential level since Ronald Reagan in 1984, is also home to a competitive House race between Rep. Jamie Herrera Beutler, a Republican, and Democrat Carolyn Long -- a rematch of 2018, when the congresswoman won by just over five percentage points.

Rep. Kim Schrier, a freshman Democrat and physician who captured a seat long held by Republicans, is also facing a competitive challenge from Jesse Jensen, a former program manager at Microsoft and Amazon.

*Counties are colored red or blue when the % expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
