Tips for Filing your Nominating Petition
- Declaration of Candidacy – The candidate’s name will appear on the ballot as it appears on the Declaration of Candidacy. The Declaration must be signed by the candidate. It may not be signed by anyone else.
- Ballot Access Checklist and Receipt - This receipt acknowledges that you submitted the documents selected in Section IV to the Board of Elections. The candidate/designee completes, signs, and dates this form, and returns it to the Board of Elections in person (by appointment), by mail, or by email at [email protected].
- It is the candidate’s responsibility to review all signatures prior to submission to the Board of Elections. Board staff is not responsible for checking the signatures for campaigns.
- Make sure the “Affidavit of Circulator” on each petition page is completed and signed.
- Before filing, all petition sheets which comprise the entire nominating petitions must be serially numbered and assembled.
- While not required, filing the minimum number of signatures before the last day can be very helpful. If a document is missing or an error made, there is still time to file the missing document or to correct the error before the deadline.
- Once the initial petition that meets the minimum signature requirement has been filed, supplemental petition sheets may be filed until 5:00 pm on the last day for filing.
- If you file in person by appointment, you must come prepared to file – you will not be permitted to prepare to file in the Board’s offices.
We strongly encourage candidates to download and review the documents in this section before filing their ballot access documents.
