How do I become a candidate?
Anyone wishing to become a candidate for a County or municipal level elected office may pick up a petition, instructions, and an election calendar from our office. The instructions are as follows:

All blank spaces, which appear at the top of the front page of each nomination petition, must be completed before signatures are obtained. Do not obtain signatures before the first legal day to circulate and file nomination petitions. Type or print the name of the candidate on the FRONT and BACK of the petition EXACTLY as the candidate wants it to appear on the ballot. Candidates who wish to use names other than a derivative of their legal name must execute a Name Change Request Form that is available at County Election office.
