Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100.0%. Each column will add up to 100.0% after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages.[3]

Method of board member selection

The Marysville Board of Directors consists of five members elected by district to four-year terms. There was not a primary election on August 6, 2013 as each seat up for election did not have more than two candidates. Two seats were up for election on November 5, 2013 and three seats will be on the ballot on November 3, 2015.

Elections in Washington require candidates to pay filing fees equal to 1% of a position's annual salary. Board members in Marysville can be reimbursed up to $4,800 for district activities but do not receive salaries, which eliminates the filing fee. Candidates were required to file nominating petitions by May 17, 2013 to qualify for the November ballot. Each candidate could also submit a photo and statement of 200 words or less by August 14, 2013 for the county's local voter pamphlet.[4]
