The cast of characters making up the fall election season has been decided.

Throughout the state of Washington, the official filing period for available seats was May 13-17. Where more than two candidates have filed, the field will be whittled during an Aug. 6 primary election. If there are just two candidates on record, both will advance to the November primary election.

Most Plateau races fall into the latter, less-exciting category. There are just three instances where a primary paring will be needed and, keeping voters’ options to a minimum, most area races will feature just a single candidate.

Here’s a look at who filed for local cities and towns, school boards and fire district seats. Incumbent office-holders are noted with an asterisk.
