Candidates wanted

While some political races in the city of Spokane are pretty crowded, other positions around the county are not. Some are even candidate-less.

In an effort to get candidates for posts that have none, Spokane County Elections Manager Mike McLaughlin has scheduled a special filing period for Wednesday through Friday. Wouldbe officeholders who live in the city, town or district can file their paperwork at the Elections Office, 1033 W. Gardner.

Note: this is not an opportunity to challenge a candidate who is running unopposed for a seat. It's limited to positions with no candidates. Under state law, if no one files, the incumbent (if there is one) retains the seat until the next election if he or she is willing to serve. Otherwise, the seat is declared vacant, and filled by whatever means is set up by statute, ordinance or bylaws.

To see the full list of positions subject to the special filing period, go inside the blog.
