Candidate filing starts next week

Saturday, April 28, 2012

The filing period for the August primary and November general election is May 14-18, but candidates will start filing Monday, April 30, when they can start filing by mail.

Online and in-person filers must wait until May 14.

Candidates for jurisdictions that are totally in King County, like the 46th Legislative District, file at the County elections office in Renton, but candidates for districts that cross county lines, like the 32nd Legislative District and the 7th Congressional District, file at the secretary of state's office in Olympia.

Elections officials encourage candidates to file online.

Candidates who come to the office are given a computer and directions for online filing.

Using online filing allows information to go directly into county and state elections records.
