You have decided to run for office. You will need to file for the office but you will also need to open a
Campaign Finance Committee. Filing is done at a
specified time each year. However, your committee needs to be open within 10 days of announcing your decision to run. If you are not affiliated with a party, you must complete petitions in order to run for office. See below for details to run as an UNAFFILIATED candidate. You must be affiliated with a party for 90 days prior to the day you file for office in that party.Review the 2018 Candidate's Guide. (At this time we have not received the updated Guide for 2019)
