A lone candidate will be on the ballot for the Clallam Conservation District supervisor election March 20, while in Jefferson County, only the incumbent filed for the seat and so was named to it without a vote.

Absentee ballots for the Clallam district election must be requested by 4 p.m. Monday.

Sequim-area resident Robert Beebe was the only candidate to file for the Clallam board seat now held by Linda Barnfather, who is not seeking a second term, by the Feb. 20 filing deadline.

As a result, only Beebe’s name will appear on the ballot for the three-year unpaid position during the upcoming election.

The election will be from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Armory Square, 228 W. First St., Suite F, Port Angeles.

Voters who are unable to cast their votes at the polling place can request an absentee ballot.

Jefferson County

In Jefferson County, Chairwoman Julie Boggs of Chimacum will remain on the board for another term.

She was the only person to file for her seat, and so no election was conducted. Her re-election was announced Feb. 6 after the filing deadline of Feb. 5.

Five positions make up each board. Registered county voters elect three of the positions, each in a different year. The Washington State Conservation Commission appoints the other two.

Neither of the Clallam districts state-appointed positions is open this year.

One is open in Jefferson County.

Applications and supporting materials for the appointed seat now held by Glen Huntingford must be received by the state commission by March 31.

Applicants must be registered to vote in the state but do not have to live within the district.

For more information or to obtain an application form, visit the Jefferson County Conservation District office or phone it at 360-385-4105, or contact the state Conservation Commission website at or 360-407-6215.

For information from the Clallam Conservation District, visit the office at Armory Square, 228 W. First St., Suite H, Port Angeles; phone 360-775-3747, ext. 5; or visit

The Clallam board meets at 3 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month at the district office.
