If you have ever wanted to be an elected official, now is your chance. Candidate filing for positions open for election in 2018 is about to begin.

During filing week, candidates may submit their filings online, by email, by fax, or in person at the San Juan County Elections Office at 55 Second Street Friday Harbor.

Online candidate filing will be available Monday, May 14 at 9 a.m. through Friday, May 18 at 4 p.m. In person, emailed and faxed filings will be accepted Monday, May 14 at 8 a.m. through Friday, May 18 at 4:30 p.m.

If filing by mail, forms should be mailed to San Juan County Auditor, Elections Office, PO Box 638, Friday Harbor, WA 98250.

Candidates should consider filing online. Candidates who file online will receive not only confirmation of their filing, but also updates when other candidates file for that office.

To file online, go to the Elections webpage at and navigate to “Candidate Filing Online” under “Candidate Information.” Candidates filing for Federal or State offices will file with the Secretary of State.
