If you don’t like how things are here’s a chance to run for office and make a change.

While many people have announced their candidacy, today it becomes real as candidates can officially file for local office through Friday at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office.

Within the Everett city limits there are two Port Commission Positions open.

As far as the Everett City Council goes, four of the seven seats on the City Council in Everett, Washington are up for election this year.

In 2019, there will be elections for positions 4 and 5 (2-year, at-large terms) and for positions 6 and 7 (4-year, at-large terms). No districts yet, all terms will be city-wide.

Position 1-5 will eventually become the district positions, and positions 6 and 7 will become the at-large positions.

2021 will be the first election by district. Candidates can run for 4-year terms in positions 1-5, representing the new districts.

In 2023, there will be elections for positions 6 and 7 for 4-year, at-large terms.

Here are the current incumbents and the position’s terms for the 2019 election.

City of Everett Council Position (4) 2-Year Liz Vogeli
City of Everett Council Position (5) 2-Year Scott Bader
City of Everett Council Position (6) 4-Year Brenda Stonecipher
City of Everett Council Position (7) 4-Year Judy Tuohy

There are two at large seats on the Everett School Board and a position on the Snohomish County Council that represents both Everett and Mukilteo.

There are also many positions county-wide.
