WAC 391-25-630

Procedure where conduct objections are filed.

Where objections allege improper conduct under WAC 391-25-590 (1)(a) or (2), other parties may be requested to respond to the objections within a period of time established by the agency. The period shall be seven days or more.
(1) If the objections and any responses indicate there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that one of the parties is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law, the commission may issue a summary judgment in the matter.
(2) If the objections and any responses raise material questions of fact which cannot be resolved without a hearing, there shall be issued and served on each of the parties a notice of hearing before a hearing officer.
(a) Hearings on objections to conduct affecting the results of an election may be consolidated with hearings on challenged ballots in the same proceeding.
(b) The rules relating to hearings on petitions shall govern hearings on objections, except that the scope of the hearing shall be limited to matters relevant to the disposition of the objections.
(3) The objections, any responses, and the record made at any hearing on the objections shall be referred to the commission.
