Filing period for general election is July 4-18

The 2006 filing period for elective offices on the state and county level begins Tuesday, July 4, and continues through 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 18.

Since July 4 is a national holiday, no one can file in person on July 4, however, that date remains the official day to start gathering signatures for those filing by petition.

The two-week period is held for people seeking public office, or those seeking re-election to their office.

Across the state, several elected positions are up for re-election.
