(The deadline is this Friday)….For those who want to run in the next election.

The Candidate Filing deadline is August 9th and 5:00 pm. The next election is November 5th and will be for special districts and school districts. The Registrar of Voters office says, however, if any incumbent for any office who is eligible to stand for re-election does not file by the deadline, the filing will be extended to Wednesday August 14th at 5:00 pm for anyone other than the incumbent to file. In November, voters will choose two Trustees in the McCabe Unified School District. 2 Directors for the Salton Community Services District. 2 Directors for the Seeley County Water District. 3 Directors for the Winterhaven County Water District and 2 Directors for the Bombay Beach Community Service District. All seats are for 4 year terms. The Salton Community Services District will have two measures on their ballot. Measure N is a special tax for Fire Protection. Measure O is for the approval of an Annual Appropriations Limit. Questions on the filing process should be directed to the Registrar of Voters Office.
