CANDIDATE FILING PERIOD OPENS MONDAY

CANDIDATE FILING PERIOD OPENS MONDAY

The candidacy filing window for the November elections is about to open. Reporter Dan Stork tells office hopefuls that they can do it online…

The period for filing to be a candidate for public office in the November 14 election opens July 14 and closes August 8. If no incumbent of a specific public agency has filed by August 8, the filing period for that office extends to August 15. Candidates can file online, through the web site of the Registrar of Voters of San Bernardino County. Go to sbcountyelections.com, click on Elected Officials and Candidates. That page has information on reports and disclosures that must be filed, and also has an Electronic Filing Portal, where some of the forms may be completed directly. Some public agencies may have filing packets available for pickup at their offices, but it is best to call first, if you don’t use electronic filing. Several local public agencies have one or more seats up for grabs in the November 2014 elections: Yucca Valley Town Council, Twentynine Palms City Council, Joshua Basin and Hi-Desert Water Districts, Morongo Unified School District, Copper Mountain College, and the Hi-Desert Memorial Health Care District.
