18 March 2022 Update
The Pierce Conservation District regrets to inform the voters, candidates, and member of the public that the current mail-in election, has been cancelled by resolution of the board of supervisors. This election was originally set to conclude on the Election Day of March 23, 2022.
The election has been cancelled because the board of supervisors became aware of an error that occurred during the processing of a candidate’s application. This error, while not intentional, resulted in the candidate not receiving equal time and space for the publication of their biography and candidate statement.
The Pierce Conservation District strives to provide a fair, open and transparent election process for its voters, candidates and member of the public.
