Here comes election filing week! | News
It's a big election year with many seats, local and national, up for grabs. Election announcements are spilling out like Seattle rain, never ending - we're looking at you 3rd Legislative District!
The official candidate filing begins next week on Monday at 9 a.m. Candidates who are serious about running will lay down the cash ranging from $421-1,740 for a chance on November's ballot.
Potential candidates have until Friday at 4 p.m. to lay their claim to this year's political spectrum.
Seats available for re-election this year range from the President of the United States to State Rep. in District 3,4,6,7 and 9 and even congressional.
When a candidate files, they can either do it in-person or online. Going in-person has a sense of fanfare to it so after filing time closes, we'll get a list of who went down there in person.
Spokane County Elections also has a part of their website that updates when a person registers so you can see the list updated frequently online. That's always exciting too especially if you set your browser to refresh every 30 seconds to see the updates happen before everyone else.
In Other Words: Who else is excited for the election season to officially start up? Political literature on your door step, yard signs blowing over, phone calls during the dinner hour, etc. What isn't there to love?
