First Chelan County Courthouse

When the City of Wenatchee was organized in 1893, it was part of Kittitas County. The Washington State Legislature of 1899 established the present boundaries of Chelan County.

The cities of Wenatchee and Chelan sparred with each other regarding the location of the county seat. Judge Thomas Burke of Seattle, who had platted the town site of Wenatchee, sold the Clark Hotel for one dollar to Chelan County in 1900 with the understanding that Wenatchee would be the county seat and use the hotel as a courthouse. The Clark Hotel had been constructed at 238 S. Wenatchee Avenue in 1893. People from Chelan were given top county jobs as part of the deal.

About the same time, a jail was built behind the courthouse. It is a two story brick building still standing. The courthouse and jail were joined by a bridge. These buildings were vacated in 1924 after the courthouse on the corner of Orondo and Washington Streets was completed. The old courthouse and jail were sold to John Doneen for $54,000. Doneen converted the courthouse into a hotel again and remodeled the jail into an annex. The Pybus Company removed toe cells which were installed in the Okanogan County jail.

In the late thirties the upper floor of the hotel was removed. The building has since been used as a service station and garage.

Election rules

Primary election

Primaries are held only if more than two candidates file for a position. These contests are nonpartisan in nature.[1] The two candidates who receive the greatest number of votes in the primary advance to the general election. Until 2013, a candidate who won over 50 percent of the vote in the primary was then unopposed in the general election. But the law was amended in 2013. Since that amendment, the top two finishers in a judicial primary must advance to compete with each other in the general election.[2][3][4]

General election

In counties with a population greater than 100,000, if only one superior court candidate files for election for a judgeship, that candidate is automatically elected and the county does not hold a general election for the seat.[5] According to the 2010 census, the following counties had populations greater than 100,000:[6]
