Saturday, April 4, 2015 – Since there won’t be many elections in 2015, it’s a great time to prepare to run for one of California’s many public offices during the 2016 elections. And since next year’s election will be a Presidential Election, you know that many people will vote who don’t get involved with Mid-term elections and off-year elections. Why not grab some of that extra political interest while it’s hot?
Need something to help you plan your campaign? Try the Elections Division’s Key Dates and Deadlines list! You can find out all the major dates and requirements that candidates have to meet in order to be a certified candidate, and that information can help you plan all your other campaign activities, such as fund raising, speaking at public events, getting your name and your campaign platform publicized, and so much more.
Candidates can begin filing signatures in lieu of filing fees as early as January 1, 2016, but must finish by February 25. So find a local office to run for – City Council, County Board of Supervisors, a Special District Board of Directors seat, or any of many others – then build your team with previous candidates and volunteers.
