The Washington gubernatorial election is scheduled for November 6, 2012, following a primary on August 7, 2012.

Incumbent Christine Gregoire announced on June 13, 2011 she would not seek another term in office.[1] Since Gregoire's departure, Congressman Jay Inslee, the only Democrat to have entered the race, is the party's presumptive nominee. Inslee initially indicated he would hold his seat in Congress throughout the election cycle, but resigned on March 11th in order to focus on his campaign.[2]

Inslee will likely face Rob McKenna, the state's current attorney general, in the general election. McKenna will first face Shahram Hadian in the Republican primary. One third party candidate has already declared their intention to seek the top office, as well: Mary Martin is running on the Socialist Workers Party ticket.
