Become a Candidate


The link below has information related to candidate filing. Find information on running for office in the upcoming election on the Candidate Filing page. Under the Next Election tab above, you can find information such as the offices up for election and important dates for candidates.

The best advice for all candidates is to FILE EARLY. The filing deadlines are rigid. If you wait until the last moment to file a document that may contain errors or omissions, your right to appear on the ballot may be lost. Mistakes and/or oversights can be corrected if given adequate time.

If you have questions about running for office, you can reach Candidate Services at (209) 754-6375 or toll-free in California at 1-833-536-8683. You can also e-mail questions.
