PORT ANGELES — A contest featuring the incumbent county prosecutor being challenged by one of his former deputies tops the list of 10 positions headed toward the November ballot.
Filing for those positions opens today and continues through Friday.
Candidate filing began at 8:30 a.m. today and continues through 4:30 p.m. Friday in the Election Center, located downstairs in the Clallam County Courthouse at 223 E. Fourth St. in Port Angeles.
The primary election is scheduled Sept. 17 and the general election will be Nov. 5. The county has switched to countywide mail-in voting after experimenting with the procedure during last year’s primary.
The eight county positions on this year’s ballot are auditor, assessor, district 3 county commissioner, District Court One Judge, District Court Two Judge, prosecutor, sheriff and treasurer.
Two Clallam County Public Utility District No.1 positions also are on the ballot: the two-year unexpired term of Wil Purser and the six-year term of Hugh Haffner.
Former county public works attorney Deborah Kelly announced in January she would seek the county prosecutor position held by Chris Shea.
