Filing For Political Office Starts Next Week In Washington
Political signs could start showing up in Yakima and around the state next week. That’s because the filing week for the August 6 Primary Election starts Monday, May 13 and ends Friday, May 17.
Yakima County Elections Manager Kathy Fisher says since it’s an odd year election there’s a long list of positions up for grabs. In fact she says there’s 113 positions on this year’s primary ballot.
“They’re all non-partisan positions like city and town councils and school board positions, fire, park and sewer commissioners among others.” If you are interested in running for office and putting up those campaigns signs early you could file for office early Monday morning beginning at 9:00 a.m. in the Yakima County Auditors Office.
