New: 2020-2021 COVID-19 election guidance

At their September 2020 meeting, members of the Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC) adopted two recommendations related to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  1. All conservation districts consider taking the necessary steps to protect voters, candidates, CD staff and polling workers during the COVID-19 pandemic, and
  2. Conservation districts review and consider the actions identified by Commission staff in the memo to the Commission dated September 17, 2020 and titled “Conservation District Elections and the COVID-19 Pandemic” as they plan for their elections.

Issue advisories

Election and appointment issue advisories serve to fill the gap that exists between election and appointment rules (RCW Chapter 89.08 and WAC Section 135-110), policies (the Election Manual) and issues that don’t lend themselves easily or at all by establishing a rule or policy. From time-to-time, as needed, the Commission election officer will create issue advisories to address issues that arise related to conservation district elections and appointments.
