Candidate Filing for Local Elections Open

Written by
With the Nov. 3, 2015 Consolidated District Elections less than four months away, those looking to run for local office have less than a month to declare their candidacy with the filing period set to remain open through Aug. 7. “We encourage citizens to learn about this applicant process and consider becoming a candidate for office,” said Lee Lundrigan, Stanislaus County Clerk-Recorder and Registrar of Voters.
Former congressional candidate Michael Eggman (D-Fresno), who ran and lost against incumbent U.S. Representative Jeff Denham (R-Turlock) in the November 2014 General Election by nearly 13 points, has declared his intention to run again for the same office. Eggman’s voter registration was canceled in Stanislaus County due to no activity in the past two federal elections, according to Stanislaus County Clerk Recorder Lee Lundrigan, making him unable to vote for himself in the previous election.
Within the City of Turlock, 14,512 of the 28,750 registered City voters cast ballots during the Nov. 4 General Election for a total citywide turnout of 50.48 percent, according to the Certified Statement of the Vote signed by Stanislaus County Clerk Recorder and Registrar of Voters Lee Lundrigan. In Stanislaus County 92,738 of the 214,188 registered voters cast ballots for a total percentage of 43.30. Turlock voters comprised 15.65 percent of the total countywide voter turnout.
