Prospective candidates are strongly encouraged to consult legal counsel regarding qualifications to seek office and preparation of nomination papers. Nomination papers cannot be amended once filed. Only a receipt for filing the required Statement of Economic Interests may be added until 5:00 PM on the last day to file.

Objections to Nominating Papers


A candidate’s nomination papers are subject to challenge by qualified objectors who believe the papers are incomplete or do not meet the guidelines of apparent conformity. Appointments for reviewing the voter registration records of petition signers should be made by contacting the Voter Services Department at 847-377-2410.
