Candidate Filing Information

Candidates seeking to file for the 2018 elections should note the below tables to determine the proper place and date to file. To file, a candidate will need to submit a Notice of Candidacy to the respective Board of Election governing their race during the filing period. In order to prevent the premature filing of the form, the Notice of Candidacy forms will be made available approximately two weeks prior to the start of candidate filing. The filing form and the requisite filing fee must be received by the respective Board of Election before the filing period ends.


Generally, the filing fee is one percent (1%) of the salary of the position being sought.

More information about residency, age requirements, filing fees, required forms, and reporting obligations will soon be available under the "Fact Sheets" heading on the left-hand side of this page.
