The results are in, and there are a number of well-contested races for public office in the local area.

As of Monday, 54 candidates have filed for 33 open positions within South Lewis and North Cowlitz Counties, with five (Mayor of Toledo, Mayor of Vader, Vader City Council No. 4, Winlock School Board Director No. 1, and Lewis County Fire District 2 Commissioner No. 1) headed to the August Primaries with at least three candidates filed for each.

A handful of other offices (three commissioners for Lewis County Cemetery District 7 and one for Cowlitz County Fire District 6) had no candidate register last week, so a special filing period is taking place this week (Tuesday through Thursday in Lewis County, Wednesday through Friday for Cowlitz County) during which time interested parties may still file, though, if no one registers, the positions will be stricken from the ballot and a current incumbent will retain the position.

Below are the candidates as published online Monday, with current incumbents indicated. For more information, contact the Lewis County Auditor's Office at (360) 740-1278, or 351 NW North St., in Chehalis, or online at vote.wa.gov/lewis; or contact the Cowlitz County Auditor's Office at (360) 577-3005, or 207 N. 4th Ave., in Kelso, or online at vote.wa.gov/Cowlitz.
