Election Updates and Announcements

The Conservation Commission (Commission) seeks comment on two proposed changes to the CD Election and Appointment Guide: 1) add a sample notice specific to mail-in elections, and 2) add a sample resolution specific to mail-in elections.   

Comments are due July 9, 2021 by 5pm. To comment, please use this form or mail them to Bill Eller, Washington State Conservation Commission, PO Box 47721, Olympia, WA 98504-7721.   

The Commission will review changes for potential action at their July meeting. If passed, they will be in effect for the 2022 conservation district election season (Jan-Mar).

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.
