From Membership Chair Jon Scanlon:
New precinct maps were approved by Whatcom County Council this week. Many precincts have changed numbers and/or boundaries. To find out if your precinct has changed, here are a few resources:
Map of whole county https://www.whatcomcounty.us/DocumentCenter/View/65699/2022-Whatcom-County-Precinct-Map-large
Individual precinct maps https://documents.co.whatcom.wa.us/WebLink/Browse.aspx?id=2937977&dbid=100&repo=WC
You can also go to http://www.votewa.gov/, enter voter registration information, and find your precinct number.
Current and prospective PCOs: Be sure to check your precinct before filing week, which is May 16-20, and file that week to run as PCO for your precinct.
The Auditor’s office highly recommends that PCOs file for office using the online system, which will only allow PCOs to file for the precinct in which they live. There is an option to file via a paper form, but if you use the wrong precinct number, the application may be rejected. The link to file online will be live starting at 9:00 am on May 16th, ending at 4:00 pm on May 20 at https://www.whatcomcounty.us/1891/File-for-Office
PCOs who file in May will be elected in the August primary election, but do not replace the current PCOs until after the November election. They will be invited to work with our incumbent PCOs and 2022 campaign staff.
