BELLINGHAM, Wash. – The unofficial kickoff of election season is today.

Candidates will begin tossing their hats into the ring for the 2014 elections.

It’s known as “filing week” and would-be public servants need to file applications by Friday.

Local labor leaders gathered at their biennial political education convention on Saturday.

Jeff Johnson is the president of the Washington State Labor Council.

The group says it represents about 20 percent of Washington workers and Democrats picked up most of the endorsements.

All ten Washington congressional seats are up for grabs, as are the state House, half of the state Senate, and four state Supreme Court positions.
