Notice of Filing Deadline
~Press Release 8/20/15:
Kootenai County Clerk Jim Brannon reminds people interested in running for fire district or municipal leadership roles in November that the filing deadline is 5 PM September 4.
“Numerous fire districts have Commissioner seats available, and candidates can file now,” said Brannon. “Most cities have Council or Mayor positions available, and candidates can file starting August 24.”
The attached Notice of Filing Deadline gives more details on the fire district openings; this will appear in the Press’s legal notices August 27. Municipal openings were detailed in the CdA Press August 18.
Potential candidates must contact their fire district or contact their city hall for residency requirements. Filing paperwork needs to be started and finalized at the fire district office or at city hall.
Fire district candidates must gather signatures of registered voters on their candidacy petitions. City candidates can pay a $40 fee in lieu of gathering signatures if they wish. County Elections’ staff will verify voter signatures on candidacy petitions.
“People interested in running for these offices need to take action by September 4 to ensure their names appear on the November 3 ballot,” Brannon emphasized. “And since the filing process can be time-consuming, it’s best to begin early.”
For further information, call the fire district or city hall whose phone numbers appear on your property tax notice, or phone Kootenai County Elections at 446-1030.
