First Steps for Candidates Running for a City Office
On the filing of an application for a place on the ballot, the City Secretary must review the application to determine whether it complies with the requirements as to form, content, and procedure only. That is, the City Secretary checks to be sure it was filed correctly and in a timely manner and that all required information is completed and attested to. Filing at the last minute may not give the City Secretary sufficient time for review, which is subject to state law, not to City preference. Please do not leave blank any required information on the application, as doing so may render your application invalid.
Regarding the filing of candidate/officeholder reports, the City Secretary is limited to accepting and filing the various applications, affidavits, and/or statements, and noting the date and time of filing thereon. The Office of the City Secretary cannot judge or comment upon the timeliness or sufficiency of reports filed. All applicable financial reports must be completed by the candidate or the candidate’s campaign treasurer; the candidate is responsible for filing all reports.
