Candidate Filing Begins April 13

Secretary of the Oklahoma State Election Board Paul Ziriax has announced that candidate filing for federal, state, legislative, judicial, and district attorney offices is scheduled for April 13 through 15 between the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Candidates will need to file with the Secretary of the State Election Board at the State Capitol, located at 2300 N. Lincoln Boulevard in Oklahoma City. Filing will take place on the ground floor in the east hallway of the building. Candidates filing for county positions will need to contact their County Election Board and will file at their local County Election Board.

Candidate filing packets are available for all offices on the State Election Board’s website, and packets are available at election board offices. To file for office, candidates must submit a signed and notarized declaration of candidacy, a filing fee (certified check or cashier’s check only) or a Petition Supporting Candidacy, and any required supplemental forms if applicable. Candidates should thoroughly review all qualifications included in the Candidate Filing Packet and on the State Election Board’s website. Ziriax reminded candidates that “party affiliation requirements and residency requirements for State Senator, State Representative and County Commissioner have been modified due to redistricting. Also, some candidates’ districts may have changed.” Anyone with questions or concerns regarding their eligibility should consult their legal counsel.
