Washington election filing week runs through May 16

Washington residents with political ambitions have from Monday morning until Friday afternoon to file for office. Voters will elect 10 members of the U.S. House, half the state Senate, the full state House, four state Supreme Court justices and many county executive posts in this fall’s election. Except for the judicial positions, most offices are partisan, so candidates are asked to indicate which party they prefer when they file their paperwork and pay the filing fee, 1 percent of the salary for the office sought.

On the ballot this year are council seats in cities and towns throughout Washington, as well as many mayoral slots.
