EVERETT — Candidates for local, state and federal offices can begin filing for the 2014 election today.

They can turn in paperwork at the Snohomish County Auditor’s Office in Everett or file online starting at 9 a.m. The deadline to file online is 4 p.m. Friday and 5 p.m. for those doing so in person.

The primary is Aug. 5 and the general election is Nov. 4.

This year’s election features contests for a seat on the Everett City Council and the positions of Snohomish County executive, prosecutor and sheriff.

Three members of Congress who represent the county — Democratic Reps. Suzan DelBene, Rick Larsen and Jim McDermott — are up for re-election this year. And voters will be choosing 18 members of the Legislature to represent communities throughout Snohomish County.

Four of the state’s nine state Supreme Court justices are on the ballot. Among them is newly appointed Justice Mary Yu of King County, who is looking to serve the final two years of the man she succeeded, Justice Jim Johnson.

The county Auditor’s Office is at 3000 Rockefeller Ave. in Everett. For information, call 425-388-3411.
