Even after a special three-day filing period, Cowlitz County Elections reports that there were no candidates for five elected positions around the county. Elections Supervisor Carolyn Myers says that no one filed for Director District 3 on the Toutle Lake School Board. In addition, there were no takers for Commissioner positions in Cemetery Districts 3, 4 and 6. Two positions in Cemetery District 4 are open. Myers says that, by law, these positions are now deemed as “lapsed,” and will not appear on the upcoming General Election ballot. The offices will be open for election at the next General Election that will be held for each jurisdiction.
