Washington voters have cast ballots for president 30 times since the Evergreen State joined the union in 1889.

Of those 30 elections, Washington sided with the winning candidate 21 times.

This year, the winning candidate in Washington will earn 12 Electoral Votes. That's 3 times more than the 4 Electoral Votes the state awarded to Benjamin Harrison in 1892 -- the first presidential election held after Washington joined the union in 1889.
