ABOUT THE 44TH
Located in Snohomish County — the third most populous county in Washington State — WA’s 44th District represents more than 163,109 people, according to 2020 data collected by the US Census Bureau. We are located north of Seattle, and our district is known for its diverse geography — from the bustling city of Everett to the scenic rivers and farmland of Snohomish and Lake Stevens. We humbly reside on the native land of the Coast Salish, Stillaguamish, Snohomish, and Tulalip tribes.
Our district encompasses Snohomish, Lake Stevens, Mill Creek, Everett, and Marysville. With 39,637 residents under the age of 18, the 44th District is home to six school districts: Everett, Lake Stevens, Snohomish, Marysville, and slivers of Edmonds and Mukilteo. Our District is 70.6% White, 10.9% Asian, 7.9% Hispanic or Latino, 2.5% Black, .7% Native American, .4% Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, and 3.7% two or more races. For a more detailed breakdown, visit the 2020 Census.
With 107,181 registered voters in 2020, the November election turned out a whopping 86.60% of voters. The district’s legislators are Sen. John Lovick (D), Rep. Brandy Donaghy (D-pos. 1) and Rep. April Berg, (D-pos.2). Fun fact: U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell served as State Representative for the 44th District from January 12, 1987 to January 3, 1993!
This year, the redistricting based on the 2020 census has shifted our district northeast to include North Creek, More of Snohomish, a small portion of Bothell, and Lord Hill Park. The district no longer includes Ebey Island and parts of Lake Stevens.
