Application Guidelines
The filing window for this Seat begins the Monday two weeks prior to Memorial Day and ends on the Friday of that week (5 days). Candidacy filing papers can be acquired at and are submitted to either the county elections office or the Secretary of State Office in Olympia. For non-partisan offices, if there is only two candidates filed for a Seat they will run against each other in the November election. If more than two candidates file for a non-partisan office, than the non-partisan office will go through the August primary and the top two vote getters will advance to the November election for the seat. For a partisan office, the candidates will run in the August primary even if only two people are participating. This may create scenarios where the same candidates participate for the same seat in the August primary and November election. For any further questions, the Pacific County Elections office can be reached at (360)-876-9317 or jkidd@co.pacific.wa.us, and the Secretary of State Office can be reached at (360) 902-4151 or mail@sos.wa.gov. ***Washington is one of the only states with online filing for candidacy.
