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.
According to the Stanislaus County Registrar of Voters there are multiple County Board of Education seats, as well as town-specific school district and irrigation board seats up for election.
Specific to Turlock, the offices up for election this November include the Stanislaus County Board of Education for Areas 3 and 4, Turlock Unified School District Trustees for Areas 1, 3, 5, and 7 (which is shared with Merced County), and Turlock Irrigation District Board Members for Divisions 1 and 4.
To appear on the ballot, all candidates meeting the office-specific qualifications, including incumbents, must file nomination documents by the Aug. 7 deadline. An updated and revised list of candidates who have filed their nomination documents with the County Elections office will be posted daily during this period.
All interested parties are encouraged to visit the Stanislaus County Clerk-Recorder/ Elections Office at 1021 “I” Street, Room 101, between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. in downtown Modesto, or to telephone the office at 209-525-5200, or 525-5230 for assistance in Spanish.
