A major outage involving the Northwest Open Access Network (NOANet) is affecting all of the state election web applications, including online candidate filing, the Washington Election Information system, and the statewide Voter Registration Database.
Candidates may file in person, or fax/email a downloaded Declaration of Candidacy Form, followed by payment of any filing fees. If a fee applies, it must be received by the Thurston County Auditor's Office no later than 4:30 pm. on Friday, May 15.
The provider says the network experienced “utilization spikes,” and continues to troubleshoot. They have not given an estimated time of restoration. We will keep you updated with developments.
File in person and make payments at:
