COVID 19COVID-19 UPDATES: 

03/24/2020: District Elections Notice: In light of the order Governor Inslee gave to "Stay at Home to Stay Safe" during remarks at 5:30 PM on March 23, 2020, changes to our Board of Supervisors Election are as follows:

Our election will continue as planned with a change in “in-person” voting only.  For those voters expecting to vote in-person, they will be able to call Election Supervisor Selena Corwin at (253) 358-9240 by 8pm on Wednesday, March 25th to request that a ballot be delivered to them. There will be signs at the Pioneer Park Pavilion (original location of polling site), our office, our website and District social media sites saying such.  

Once a verbal request has been received, a ballot (it will be color coded different than mail-in ballots) will be hand delivered to their home (following strict social distancing procedures) with a self-addressed and stamped envelope by 12:00 midnight on the 25th. Instructions to mail it in with a postmark deadline of March 31st will be included.   

The ballot packet shall consist of voting directions, candidate statements, ballot, secrecy envelope and self-addressed and stamped envelope.

Please note that if you already received a ballot via our “mail-in” process, those need to be postmarked no later than March 25th.

03/16/2020: Due to concerns over the continuing escalation of COVID-19, Pierce Conservation District’s offices are closed until at least March 31st. All staff are on a telework policy and unable to attend in-person meetings or site visits, however, they are all still available via email, work cell phones, or video-conferencing. 

3/10/2020: CONSERVATION CELEBRATION AND BOARD ELECTIONS UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the statewide response of limiting social interactions, we have postponed our annual Conservation Celebration until June 3, 2020. Our Board of Supervisor elections will still take place on March 25th, 4pm – 8pm outside our office at 308 West Stewart Ave, in Puyallup with precautions taken to help ensure public safety. If you already requested a “by-mail” ballot, just make sure it is post marked by March 25th. For in person voting, you must be an eligible voter and please bring proper identification; learn more here: https://piercecd.org/263/Become-a-Board-Member

Thank you for your patience during this difficult time. If we all do our part to limit the spread of the virus and help keep our community safe, hopefully we can soon have these challenging times behind us and we look forward to celebrating another great year of conservation with you all in the near future.
