Filing closed Friday, May 21 for local elections, and voters will see some familiar names on the list for Edmonds City Council.
Only those races that draw three candidates or more will appear on the Aug. 4 primary election ballot. As the week of filing began Monday, only Edmonds City Council Position 2 fell in that category, with three candidates. Now, Position 2 has four candidates and Position 2 has three candidates, meaning voters will decide finalists for both races in August.
The top two candidates in the August primary for each position will appear on the Nov. 2 general election ballot
