Candidate Filing to Open Thursday

Posted: Updated:
HELENA -

Its that time again when candidates running for state office head to the capitol and file paperwork to make their run for office official.

Starting this Thursday candidates running for state office can file at Secretary of State Linda McCulloch's office to make their run official for the primary. Candidates can file beginning this Thursday through March 10th. In 2012 there were a total of 439 candidates that filed, this year they are expecting a high number as well with the shuffle in political positions. Candidates can file via mail, fax, or online or simply by bringing the paperwork to the capitol.

"You know when I accept the filings they do not have to be notarized so when anyone else accepts them they have to be notarized. So I can actually crank through the filings much faster than anyone else in the office, I will be here all day Thursday and most of the time to March 10th." said Secretary of State Linda McCulloch.

In addition before candidates begin fundraising for their campaigns, candidates must also file C-1 and D-1 forms at the Commissioner of Political Practices Office in Helena within five days of filing with the Secretary of States Office.
