2021 Candidate Filing Due in Person
May 21, 2021 @ 4:30 pm
In-person campaign filing starts on May 17 from 8:30 am through Friday, May 21 at 4:30 pm.
The courts have upheld that mail misdirected by error is not a valid excuse for late filing. All candidates filing a Declaration of Candidacy form must pay the applicable
(non-refundable) filing fee at the time of filing. The filing fee for City of Tukwila Council Positions is $150.00, which is equal to 1% of the current annual salary.
If a candidate lacks sufficient assets or income to pay the filing fee, they can contact King County Elections to receive information about options.

NOTE: According to the Washington State disclosure law, you become a candidate when you do one of these things: accept a contribution or spend money for your campaign; reserve space or purchase advertising to promote your candidacy; authorize someone else to do any of these activities for you; state publicly that you are seeking office; or file a declaration of candidacy.
Within two (2) weeks of the date you become a candidate, you must file a Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1) and a Candidate Registration (C-1) with the PDC (Public Disclosure Commission). Please visit the PDC website at http://www.pdc.wa.gov for additional information.
