The Odessa Record -

Filing period for fall elections May 14-18

 

April 12, 2018



The official filing period for the fall elections will be held May 14 through May 18, 2018.

All offices are subject to both Primary and General Elections. If more than two candidates file for a position, the Primary Election would narrow the field to the top two candidates who would then appear on the General Election ballot.

The filing fee of one percent of the annual salary shall accompany the Declaration of Candidacy. There is no fee if the office sought is without a fixed salary.

Anyone wishing to file may do so at the Lincoln County Auditor’s Office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the stated filing period. Mail-in Declarations must not be received before April 30, 2018. Declarations by mail must be in our office no later than the last day of the filing period, May 18, at 4 p.m., and must include the correct filing fee if any required.

All offices are subject to both Primary and General Elections except the following: PUD Commissioner will be on the General Election ballot only unless more than two candidates file for the position. In that case, the Primary Election would narrow the field to two candidates who would then appear on the General Election ballot; Precinct Committee Officers will appear only on the Primary Election ballot; District Court Judge will appear only on the General ballot, unless more than two candidates file. Then the two candidates receiving the most votes in the Primary Election would advance to the General Election ballot.

In the Primary Election, candidate names for County Commissioner District #3 will appear only on ballots for those precincts within the specific District. At the General Election, this commissioner position will be on ballots county wide.

The filing fee of one percent of the annual salary shall accompany the Declaration of Candidacy. There is no filing fee for Precinct Committee officer. There is no fee if the office sought is without a fixed salary. You may pick up a filing packet at the Auditor’s office or visit http://www.co.lincoln.wa.us to download the form from the Elections website.

Anyone wishing to file may do so at the Lincoln County Auditor’s office between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. during the stated filing period. Mail-in Declarations must not have a postmark earlier than April 30. Declarations by mail must be in our office no later than the last day of filing period, May 18, at 4 p.m., and must include the correct filing fee.
