2019 Elections and Appointments

King Conservation District (KCD) will host an election in 2019 for Seat #1 on KCD’s Board of Supervisors. All Supervisors are public officials who serve without compensation and who set policy and direction for the conservation district.

To apply for the open position, submit an application to KCD by the candidate filing deadline. Candidates must be registered voters within the conservation district boundary and may be required to own land or operate a farm. The candidate filing deadline for the 2019 KCD election is January 31, 2019 at 5:00pm.

The primary method of voting in this election will be by mail-in, paper ballot that must be requested by the voter using an online or telephone ballot application process. Registered voters who reside within the conservation district boundary are eligible to vote. A hyperlink to this application will be available on the KCD website at 9:00 a.m. March 15th, 2019 and through the end of the voting period.

Alternatively, an in-person paper ballot polling station will also be available at KCD’s Office at 800 SW 39th St, Suite 150, Renton, WA 98057, and will be open from 9:00am until 5:00pm (PST) Monday through Friday only during the voting period.

The voting period will be from Monday, March 18, 2019 at 9:00am through Friday March 29, 2019 until 5:00pm. All ballots must be requested by the end of the voting period to be valid. Because this is an on-request mail-in election, no “absentee ballots” are necessary.

Published elections procedures can be viewed at KCD’s Office. Contact the KCD office at 425-282-1900 with questions.

Serving on the KCD Board of Supervisors

Do you have a passion for local food, healthy forests, and clean water? Do you enjoy volunteerism and contributing to your community? Since 1949, KCD has helped the citizens of King County steward natural resources.

KCD is led by an all-volunteer, five-member Board of Supervisors. Three of those supervisors are elected by voters and two are appointed by the Washington Conservation Commission, an agency created to assist and guide the conservation district activities in Washington State. Each Supervisor has a term that lasts three years.

Serving on the Board of Supervisors takes commitment and time. The Board meets a minimum of once per month and helps set policy and direction. Regular board meetings take place at 5:00 pm on the second Monday of every month. Additional participation in Special Board Meetings or Committee Meetings is often part of a board position. Board members spend about ten hours a month supporting and guiding KCD.

Who is eligible to run for election or appointment to the KCD Board of Supervisors?

To apply for the open position on KCD’s Board of Supervisors, you must first meet the following requirements:

  • Must be a registered voter in King County
  • Must reside within the boundaries of the King Conservation District
    • Includes all of King County except the following cities: Enumclaw, Federal Way, Skykomish, Milton, and Pacific
  • Select Board of Supervisor seats may require the candidate to own property in King County

In addition to the requirements above, all applicants must submit the proper application forms to KCD by the candidate filing deadline.

What forms do I need to submit for an elected position?

To apply for an elected seat on the Board of supervisors, you will need to complete both the PF-A and PF-B forms. Both forms must be completed and returned to KCD’s Renton Offices by the candidate filing deadline (January 31st, 2019 at 5:00 pm).
