Precinct Maps

Full 2019 Precinct Maps for Cowlitz County

Abridged Version of 2019 Precinct Maps for Cowlitz County
Version I made with just those pages involving Kalama. Find the map showing the address at which you are registered to vote. That identifies your precinct. If you know your precinct already you may prefer to use the Cowlitz County Levy Codes List 2019.

How to read the codes in the precinct map/list: As an example, in my abridged version of the maps, page 5 is precinct Kalama South. Let's say you live on Birch St. in Kalama South 1. The listing for Kalama South 14.01 states:

Congressional 3 -- WA03 currently held by Jaime Herrera-Beutler (R), our House Rep in DC.
Legislative 20 - LD20, our legislative representatives in Olympia: John Braun (R), Ed Orcutt (R), and Richard DeBoldt (R) (who also collects 6-figure salary from NWIW).
County Commissioner 1 - see below (*)
Fire, Cemetery, School, and PUD are all obvious
City Kalama - Means you live in the city limits and can vote for City Council; if not you can't.
Port KM1 - Means you live in Kalama Port district 1 so if you were to run for Port Commissioner you could only run for district 1 position, but you can still vote for any of the three Port Commissioner candidates as they come up. (Note: Port Commissioner terms of office)

* Note on Cowlitz County Commissioners: From the BOCC website, "The three County Commissioners are elected to four-year terms. The county is divided into three districts on the basis of population (Cowlitz Commissioner Districts Map). At the time of election, each commissioner must live in and represent his/her district. The commissioners are partisan and are nominated in a primary election encompassing only their district. In the general election, all county voters are given an opportunity to select the commissioners who ultimately serve."
