Filing deadline approaches for city, school board races


By Tom Marshall
Senior Advocate writer

County Clerk Chris Cockrell urges candidates to get their paperwork in in time for the Aug. 14 filing deadline for city, school board and soil conservation offices.

Papers must be filed by 4 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 14, to make it on the November general election ballot.

Cockrell suggests that candidates stop by a few days early to pick up the forms they must fill out to register and pay the registration fee.

Different offices have different requirements. Soil conservation supervisor positions require 25 signatures from the public, for instance, while other offices only require two, Cockrell said.

The filing deadline for county, state and federal offices has already expired.
