Much of Springdale’s population seems to want to be mayor, but many other elected offices in rural northeastern Washington went begging or drew only one candidate during last week’s filing period.
County auditors will conduct special three-day extended filing periods for offices that drew no candidates. Those include numerous positions for fire, sewer, water, hospital, cemetery and park districts as well as municipal offices.
The special filing periods will be Wednesday through Friday in Stevens and Pend Oreille counties; Aug. 8, 11 and 12 in Ferry County; and Aug. 11-13 in Lincoln County. No dates have been set for Whitman County.
