Application GuidelinesIf you would like to be included on the ballot for county office, follow these three steps. 1) Contact the county elections officer. The elections officer can provide information about the availability of filing papers and answer questions regarding nominating petitions and other ballot procedures. 2) Arrange to pick up required paperwork. 3) Return your completed paperwork within the designated filing window. This is a partisan office, and candidates who wish to be nominated by a major political party will need to adhere to an earlier filing deadline in order to appear on the ballot for the May primary.
