Deadline to Declare for Public Office is Today
Just a reminder that you’re going to run for public office this year, today is the deadline to formally declare. To do that, head on down to your local Board of Canvassers or to the Secretary of State’s office and fill out some papers. Next, you’ll have to get a certain number of signatures to appear on the ballot, and that’s when the fun part starts, the campaign.
Also, the Secretary of State’s office sent out a reminder that they again have a page up on their site that will show you who has declared for each seat. It is great information to see get updated frequently and as the signature forms get returned over the next few weeks, I plan to analyze some of the upcoming races.
Keep in mind that just because someone has declared for office, it doesn’t mean that they’ll be on the ballot until they return at least the correct number of valid signatures. Let the fun begin!
