Run for office - candidate filing by mail starts Monday

Sunday, April 28, 2013

Candidate filing for the August primary and November general election starts Monday.

The official filing dates are May 13-17, but candidates may file by mail if their declarations of candidacy arrive at the King County elections office in Renton April 29 through May 17.

In-person and on-line filing is open only during the official May 13-17 filing period.

County elections officials accept mail filings that arrive April 29 through May 10, but the filings don't become official and aren't public record until May 13.

Any filing for a paid position must include a filing fee equal to 1 percent of the annual salary or petitions signed by a number of registered voters equal to the number of dollars in the filing fee.

King County Elections hosted two complimentary 2-hour workshops to discuss important information related to filing for office in King County. The second one was last Saturday. Shoreline Area News might have alerted its readers sooner. Score one for the incumbents.
