Filing for elections runs May 11-15
April 30, 2020
Filing for elected positions on the 2020 primary and general election ballots will run May 11-15.
Candidates for local offices may file with their county auditor. Candidates should contact those offices to learn how to file as office access is restricted because of covid-19 virus protection measures.
Elections for county-level offices were held in 2018. The 2020 ballot include races for US president, Congress, state legislature and a mixture of local offices.
Candidates for District 19 legislative seats are already showing their colors.
Rep. Jim Walsh has announced his candidacy for re-election of his position; and 2018 candidate Joel McEntire of Cathlamet has indicated he is running for the seat held by Democrat Brian Blake. Walsh and McEntire are running as Republicans.
One also sees signs from Jeff Wilson declaring candidacy for the District 19 Senat seat held by incumbent Democrat Dean Takko.
