TACOMA, Wash. (AP) — Washington Democrats have convened for their three-day state convention.

About 1,400 people are expected throughout the weekend as the party works to finish electing delegates to the national convention and to pass a party platform.

The convention started Friday, with delegate meetings ranging from workshops on grassroots organizing to meetings on resolutions related to the platform.

On Sunday, the remaining 34 national delegates and eight alternates to the Democratic National Convention will be elected.

Bernie Sanders won the state’s Democratic caucuses in March and will have 74 delegates representing him at the national convention in Philadelphia in July. Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic nominee, will have 27 delegates from Washington state. In addition, 17 superdelegates, most of whom have already pledged their support to Clinton, will represent the state at the convention.
