Candidate Filing For Everett Offices This Week

May 16, 2021

Everett Government


Filing begins Monday and ends Friday.

While many have expressed interest in running for elected office in Everett, Washington this is the week we’ll find out how many people are really committed. We’ve run press releases sent to us from people who have declared their intent for various offices and others have filed with the PDC either currently or as incumbents carrying over from the last election. None of that matters until candidates file with the Elections division of the Snohomish County Auditor’s office. Looking at the Everett races this is a historic election for Everett City Council as it is the first time candidates will run in five individual districts instead of city-wide. Here is a general description of the districts.

  • District 1 North Everett
  • District 2 Downtown and Central Everett from Waterfront to Riverfront
  • District 3 Western Everett from Central to Mukilteo
  • District 4 Southern Everett to the west side city limits
  • District 5 Southern Everett to the east side city limits including Silver Lake

    You can click here for a map where you can zoom in or out to see the exact street boundaries of the five city council districts. (Note. It will take a moment for the map to load.)
