Candidates without sufficient assets or income may submit a filing fee petition to pay the filing fee.
You may not file signature petitions electronically.
You may not combine petition signatures and currency to satisfy the filing fee.
Only signatures of registered voters in the same jurisdiction as the office are valid. Each petition sheet must:
- Be printed on uniform paper size and color.
- Include a place for each voter’s registration name, address, city, and county.
- Provide 20 numbered lines or less.
- Display the required warning and statement found in RCW 29A.24.101 and RCW 29A.72.140.
Petitions must include a total number of valid signatures no fewer than the dollar amount of the filing fee.
No person may sign more than one nominating petition for the same office.
Without the required number of signatures, the petition is insufficient and your Declaration of Candidacy is invalid.
No additional signatures are accepted after initial submission at time of filing.
Petition sheets are not returned to the candidate.
