1st Legislative District Map, 2012-22

Washington's 1st Legislative District is one of forty-nine districts in Washington state for representation in the state legislature. The T-shaped district is mostly north of the line between King and Snohomish counties, stretching from High Bridge Road and Broadway Avenue in the east through the entirety of the cities of Bothell and Brier to I-5 in Mountlake Terrace in the west, though the district sweeps south of Bothell to part of Kirkland and reaches to Lake Washington.[1]

The district is represented by state senator Rosemary McAuliffe (D) and state representatives Derek Stanford (pos. 1) (D) and Luis Moscoso (pos. 2) (D).

Patty Murray, Washington's current senior U.S. Senator, who is the fourth-highest-ranking Democrat and the highest-ranking woman in the Senate, represented Washington's 1st Legislative District in the State Senate for 1 term from 1988-1992; directly preceding her election to United States Senate.

2012 Redistricting[edit]

Following the 2010 United States Census, the Washington Redistricting Commission was tasked with re-drawing Washington's 49 legislative districts and 10 Congressional districts. Before redistricting, Washington's 1st Legislative District had a greater portion of unincorporated Snohomish County, particularly in the area west of Mill Creek, and none of the city of Kirkland within its borders.
