Primary Election Aug. 1

There is a primary election in the mayor's race and for council positions 6 and 7 on Aug. 1. The top two candidates will then move on to the general election in November. Also on the general election ballot will be candidates for council positions 3, 4, and 5.

General Election Nov. 7

City Elections

Five of seven city council positions will be on the ballot this fall. Voters will also be directly electing a new mayor for the first time since a change in the City's form of government. 

Marijuanua Advisory Measure

The City Council placed this measure on the general election ballot to seek the opinion of voters regarding whether marijuana related businesses should be permitted to operate in the City of Snohomish.  Existing City codes prohibit all marijuana-related retail, production and processing operations.

The ballot measure is non-binding and advisory.  Following the election, the City Council would determine if the vote warrants taking any steps to revise current City codes.

See the full list of candidate filings on the Auditor's page.
