Districts final

Here are the final 5 districts. There are also 2 city-wide council positions (6 and 7) which are not on the ballot until 2023. Click to enlarge.

This year the Primary Election is set for August 3rd. Per the rules of the City of Everett Charter when it comes to eligibility to run in one of the five separate City Council Districts, those choosing to run for positions 1 – 5 have until February 3rd to establish residency to represent that district.

Sec. 2.2. Eligibility to Hold Elective Office.
No person shall be eligible to hold elective office unless he or she shall have been a registered voter and resident of the City for a period of at least one (1) year next preceding his or her election, and, for Council positions elected from Council districts, a resident of an applicable Council district, for a period of at least six (6) months prior to the primary election date preceding his or her election.

This is just the residency requirement. While many people have filed with the Public Disclosure Commission their intent to run for office this fall, the actual filing period with the Snohomish County Auditor is May 17th to 21st.

Thus, just cause someone has listed a particular City Council District with their PDC filing that may not be accurate or final and should be taken with a grain of salt. Unless they have made a formal announcement we may have to wait until May 22nd to see how the races for the five Everett City Council Districts and the Mayor of Everett are actually shaping up.
