Commissioners' race on September ballot; with no decision for the contest

Peninsula News Network


The close of last week’s filing on Friday brought a number of last minute developments for this fall’s elections, including the development of several primary election races.

One contest that will be on the ballot in September, but won’t be decided, is the race for District 1 Clallam County commissioner. Elections officials say that’s because the race involves partisan offices and must appear before voters in the Primary election.

The test will be an important one for Republican Sue Forde, to see if she has the strength to unseat Democratic incumbent Steve Tharinger. Sources tell PNN Forde has already been working hard to build support, doorbelling thousands of homes in the past few weeks.

Only voters in the East End will cast ballots for the commissioners’ race in September. The entire county votes in the November General election.
