For the first time ever, voters in Everett, Washington, will vote candidates for city council based on where they live. The city is divided into five districts, each with around 22,000 inhabitants. There are seven city councils in Everett, all of which are non-partisan. Two of them are city-wide and are not available for election this year. Brenda Stonecipher and Judy Tuohy have the two seats, which will be up for election in 2023.
The other five seats are on the ballot for the November 2nd election. Local voter guides will be mailed from the Snohomish County Auditor’s office on Wednesday October 13th, with ballot papers mailed on October 14th. When you get your ballot, you won’t see all five city council candidates, just the two candidates for the district you live in. You can use this map to find out which district is yours (it takes a minute to load). Enter your address in the search box at the top left and when the map reloads click the minus sign and zoom out to see your district.
For more information on voting, registration, lost ballots, or other general election issues, visit the Snohomish County Auditor’s office online or call 425-388-3444.
MyEverettNews.com does not keep candidate endorsements, but in September we invited candidates in opposing offices to vote in Everett to make a 500-word statement on why they should be elected. We have received submissions from some, but not all, of the candidates and are posting them as submitted by the candidates for review.
