Candidate filing period extended for 6 local races

The candidate filing deadline for three local school district seats and three special district seats has been extended because incumbents did not file in those respective races.

Candidates interested in filing for these extended races listed below can obtain and file nomination papers at the Registrar of Voters Office located at 1021 “I” Street, Modesto. Minimum qualifications required for a candidate to qualify to run for office include Stanislaus County voter registration and residency of the district in which they wish to file. Other requirements may apply. A Stanislaus County resident is entitled to vote in this Consolidated District Election if he or she is a United States citizen, California resident, not in prison or on parole for conviction of a felony and at least 18 years of age on Nov. 3.
