Calling all candidates: Filing period opens Monday

Okay, folks, here’s your chance to show all those politicians how it ought to be done.

The filing period opens Monday for candidates seeking to run in the November election for dozens of nonpartisan local offices, community service districts, and school, hospital and regional boards.

The candidates in the partisan races such as governor and state legislature have already been selected in the June primary.

The nomination period will remain open through Aug. 11 unless the incumbent does not file, in which case the filing deadline is extended five days.

Incumbents seeking re-election and residents who wish to run should contact the county election office where they reside or the clerk of the relevant agency for information on where to pick up nomination papers and how to file.
