University Place City Council (nonpartisan)
Position 6 *
-Carl J. Mollnow
University Place School Board (nonpartisan)
- Christine Kilduff

West Pierce Fire & Rescue Commission (nonpartisan)
*For nonpartisan positions, if three or more candidates file for a single position, voters will decide in the September primary election which two candidates will face each other in November.
