From K. Hosh, King county elections

Running for office can be a daunting, even intimidating process. 

There are so many questions a first-time candidate has to think about: 

What’s a filing fee? 
How long can I have campaign signs up? 
What are the public disclosure requirements? 

Fortunately, we make it easy to run for office in King County. First, everything you need to know is on our Running for Office page online. Second, you can actually file your candidacy online and avoid a trip to our office.

But to get answers to some of your most pressing questions, come talk to the experts at any of the free workshops about running for office. 

You’ll learn about:
  • Offices up for election (there are about 330 offices up for election this year!)
  • How to become a candidate
  • Filing fees
  • Basic campaign finance information
  • Campaign signs
  • Candidate statements for the voter’s pamphlet

There is an upcoming workshops in Shoreline. Remember to RSVP!

Wednesday, March 13, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

If you have any questions about candidate filing or workshops, give us a call at (206) 296-1565.
