Fair Political Practices Commission and Registrar of Voters offer guidance for candidates and treasurers …
As candidates and their campaign teams prepare for the upcoming November general municipal election, there are bound to be questions regarding the reporting and filing requirements to seek election. Fortunately, two free training seminars will be offered to provide such information.
The first is a “Candidate School” being held by the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters (ROV). This session will cover the requirements to pull and file the formal nomination papers required to seek office. It will be held on Saturday, July 14th, from 10:00 AM to noon at the ROV‘s offices at 1555 Berger Drive in San Jose. If you are interested in attending, you can RSVP at 408-299-8639.
The second is a “Candidate and Treasurer Workshop” being presented by the Fair Political Practices Commission and hosted by the City of Santa Clara. This session will cover the many good-government campaign finance reporting obligations required of candidates seeking public office. The workshop will be held on Thursday, July 26th, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM, in the City Council Chambers at 1500 Warburton Avenue in Santa Clara. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to the City Clerk‘s Office at 408-615-2220.
For new candidates, these sessions will be a helpful guide. And for returning candidates, they will provide an update regarding any changes in election law or reporting requirements.
