Pierce County candidates workshop April 3

The Pierce County Auditor’s annual candidates’ workshop is scheduled for Weds., April 3 at 6 p.m. The workshop will be held at the Pierce County Election Center, 2501 S. 35th Street, Suite C, in Tacoma.

“Our goal in the Auditor’s Office is to ensure that every candidate has accurate information and is prepared to comply with the law. I urge candidates, campaign managers and key volunteers to attend. It’s free and informative,” said Pierce County Auditor Julie Anderson.

Candidates will learn about the process of filing for office; Public Disclosure Commission requirements (a PDC staff member will be present to answer questions); details needed for submitting the voters’ pamphlet statement; Web site tools; voter registration information; redistricting and new precincts; and obtaining data and maps from the Auditor’s Office.

Vendors that offer campaign services will be present to answer questions in a “vendor fair” format.

Individuals interested in attending are asked to RSVP at piercecountyelections.org or by calling (253) 798-2634.

The Pierce County Auditor’s Office is responsible for elections, licensing services, a variety of public records and animal control services. More information about the office is available at piercecountywa.org/auditor.
