Filing began for public office in the 2018 Democratic Primary on Saturday, November 11, at the Dallas County Democratic Party office, at 4209 Parry at Fletcher, Dallas 75223.
We are NOW open for filing for both public office and Precinct Chairs. The deadline for filing is Monday, December 11, at 6 PM (the time is set by law).
We have Notaries present in case anyone needs their application notarized, but candidates are better off if they get things notarized and then make their own copies before bringing them in. We give receipts for the filing form, any filing fee, and for any petition of x pages. We don't count the signatures that appear valid until afterwards.
Note to candidates circulating: Make sure the voter address includes the city. Many signers seem confused about this because of the "County" column.
The filing does not become official until reviewed, which usually does not happen the same day. Once that happens, the candidate's name will be listed on the Secretary of State's website list of filings. The link for the filings that have been accepted (not just received) is at https://webservices.sos.state.tx.us/candidate-filing/cf-report.aspx
Candidates who submit applications are listed that same day at stoutdemblog.blogspot.com, with pictures from the filing when we get them. Remember these are only pending until listed at the Secretary of State's site above.
We will have several Primary contests, statewide and local. This should be an interesting and fun electoral year!
