Election filing deadline is March 1; Voters number down from 2020
February 23, 2022
Elections are not complicated, but then . . . they are not as simple as some people think.
There are deadlines.
For the primary election this spring, the first deadline has passed and that was for incumbents who wanted to seek re-election. The second deadline come Tuesday, March 1. That is the deadline for anyone (non-incumbent) wishing to file for an elected position.
There are other deadlines throughout the election season. For voters, the next deadline is April 22, when a person needs to be registered in order to vote.
This voter registration part of the system often is an interesting part of the process.
