Congratulations on your decision to run for public office!
This is the first step in filing as a candidate. Before you are officially recorded as a candidate for public office, your online Declaration of Candidacy must be reviewed for accuracy and completeness. Filings are not official until validated and approved by the Elections Office. Your name will appear on the Grays Harbor County Elections website as a candidate for office once your Declaration of Candidacy is validated and approved.
