It’s lobbyist registration time once again.

State law requires registered lobbyists to file a new registration statement every two years. The deadline is the second Monday in January of odd-numbered years. Failure to do so terminates the lobbyist’s registration.

Anyone planning to lobby in 2019 and 2020 are encouraged to complete their registration for the 2019-20 biennium now. Registrations can be submitted using the PDC’s lobbyist application here.

If you don’t already have an account, now is a great time to sign up. Filing online will save you valuable time because updating registrations can be done in just a couple of minutes and does not require submitting any printed forms. Short video tutorials are available to lead you through the process. 

General questions about what the disclosure requirements are? Answers to frequently asked questions and more detailed instructions on lobbyist reporting are available on our website. 

PDC staff also are available to help. Shoot us a note at pdc@pdc.wa.gov, and we’ll get back to you promptly.
