Special filing period opens for two offices in Clallam County

PORT ANGELES — A special three-day filing period begins today for two Clallam County offices that drew no candidates after the regular filing period closed on Friday.

Offices open for filing during the special filing period are the District 3 seat on the Cape Flattery School Board and Position 2 seat on the Quillayute Park and Recreation District commission.

If any candidates file, the races will appear only on the general election ballot. There will be no primary election contest regardless of the number who seek the post. The candidate who receives the most votes in the general election will be declared the winner.

If no candidate files, no additional filing period will be opened. The office will be deemed lapsed and will not appear on the general election ballot. The incumbent or person appointed will be up for election at the next election when such positions are voted upon.

Candidates can file online from 9 a.m. Wednesday until 4 p.m. Friday via the Clallam County elections website at http://www.clallam.net/elections. Candidates also can file in person from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the special filing period at the Auditor’s Office in the County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Suite 1, in Port Angeles. They can file by paper, through the mail or drop them in the drive-up drop box at the courthouse.

Candidates who file during the special filing period cannot withdraw.

For more information, see the elections website or call 360-417-2217.
