• Town of Wilkeson, Council Positions 4 and 5;

• Burnett Water District, Commissioner Positions 1, 2 and 3;

• Crystal Mountain Sewer District, Commissioner Positions 1 and 2.

Online candidate filing began Aug. 13 and closes at 4 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15. To file a declaration of candidacy go to PierceCountyElections.org and choose the “File for Office” link.

In-person filing is available during business hours (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) at the Pierce County Election Center, 2501 South 35th St., Suite C, in Tacoma.
