I’ve been saying for months that candidates file for ballot positions June 6-10.
That’s true for those who file online or file in person at the County elections office in Tukwila, but candidates who file by mail have been able to do so since Friday, May 20.
We’ll know at noon Monday, June 6, who has filed early for city, school district, utility district, county and port district positions.
As filing week goes on, we’ll get indicators of which of the non-partisan offices will require a primary ballot,
Positions with three or more candidates appear on the August 16 primary ballot. Positions with only one or two candidates appear only on the November 8 general-election ballot.
