2014 County Candidate Filing Requirements
Filing Period - March 3 through March 14, 2014

The required declaration and petitions/filing fee must be received by the County Clerk no later than 5:00 p.m. on March 14th.

Partisan and judicial candidates have two options to be placed on the ballot:
1. File declaration of candidacy and pay the filing fee or
2. File declaration of candidacy and nominating petitions, containing certain number of verified signatures.

Independent candidates do not have the two options. An independent candidate must file the declaration and petition. Independent candidates do not pay a filing fee. Independent Candidate residency, age and disclosure requirements for county offices are the same as the requirements for partisan candidates.

Declaration of Candidacy and Petition forms can be obtained by calling or mailing a written request to the County Clerk's office.
