Precinct Committee Officers are elected to two year terms in even-year Primary Elections. Candidate Filing for Precinct Committee Officers will be held in 2020.
You must complete a Declaration of Candidacy during Candidate Filing Week to become a candidate for Precinct Committee Officer (PCO). At the time of filing, you must be registered to vote in the precinct for which you are filing and may only file as a Democratic Party PCO or Republican Party PCO. There is no filing fee. Write-ins are not allowed for this office. PCOs are not eligible to submit candidate statements.
PCO races will be elected at the August 7, 2018 Primary Election for the two year term. If only one candidate files for either the Democratic or Republican position, that candidate is considered elected after the last day to withdraw (May 21, 2018). If two or more candidates file, the candidate receiving the highest votes in the Primary will be elected (WAC 434-230-100). PCOs do not advance to the General Election ballot. If no one files for office, the political party may fill the position by appointment.
