Snohomish County Elections offering candidate workshops starting April 11

Snohomish County Elections will conduct three candidate workshops beginning April 11 to explain the candidate filing process for those seeking election to one of 175 local offices up in 2023.

A seminar on financial reporting requirements for candidates and campaigns from the Washington State Public Disclosure Commission will also be hosted by Snohomish County. Candidate filing begins at 9 a.m. on Monday, May 15.

“While it is important that we have qualified, capable people filing for and obtaining elected office, understanding the ins and outs of the candidate filing process should not be a barrier,” said County Auditor Garth Fell. “These workshops are designed to provide candidates with the basic information they need to meet the candidate filing requirements and deadlines.”

Snohomish County Elections will present two workshops virtually and one workshop in person. Workshops will be an hour long and will cover topics such as candidate requirements, how to complete the filing process, and how to submit a statement and photo for the local voters’ pamphlet.
